    I'll be giving this book to my mother and my sister-in-law, the highest praise I can give it!

    The Little Women Letters begins with one of the descendants of Jo March finding a bunch of Grandma Jo's letters in her mother's attic. Lulu is struggling with some career decisions and its harder that her two sisters seem to have it all figured out. A bit of an odd duck with her bushy hair and prickly personality, Lulu finds exactly the advice and encouragement she needs in the letters. The story centers on Lulu, but also involves a whole host of the women surrounding her including an extravagant actress sister Sophie, Emma the sensible sister blissfully planning her wedding, their feminist mother Fee who learns after all these years that her marriage may not be what she thought, severe and scary Great Aunt Amy, and Charlie the quiet and sophisticated young lady who becomes one of the family.



    The Women Letters is the modern day version of the much beloved classic and Gabrielle Donnelly does a splendid job of updating the story, making it modern, but retaining the feel of a family of girls and women loving and fighting, supporting each other and jockeying for position in the family. The characters are so realistic, flawed but so well meaning and kind that you forgive them their foibles. The story is a little sentimental and you know from the beginning that everyone will magically live happily ever after, but nothing else would be right for the descendants of the March women, would it? If you let it the gentle wisdom of Little Women it will just float from the pages reminding you to forgive grudges, be loyal to your friends, and support your sisters. I'll be giving this book to my mother and my sister-in-law, the highest praise I can give it!
