Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American writer best known for her classic novel Little Women (1868-69), drawn from her own childhood. Personally educated by writers such as Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau, she first gained literary success with Hospital Sketches (1863), based on her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War. Her writing often deals with women’s issues in an honest, insightful manner.

Although this is by a good author, it is a pretty boring book. This is a collection of short stories about many random girls. So far I have liked every book by Alcott except for this book. I give it 2 stars for the actual book but it gets an extra star brcause of the author.

Just the sort of little morality tales you would expect from Louisa May Alcott. Sweet, but a bit treacly for modern tastes. Some typos and errors in the digital copy, but usually legible.

This ebook has an endless amount of typo errors, which makes it extremely difficult to read. However, I highly recommend all works by Louisa May Alcott.
