About this product
- DescriptionThe third book of the Louisa May Alcott series brings closure to Demi, Daisy, Teddy, Rob, Dan, Nat and many other characters as they embark upon their adult lives, ten years after the conclusion of Little Men. In addition, Alcott focuses more upon Josie, Bess and others who were mere tots in the previous books, and thus t as interesting as their older family and friends. Before the vel's conclusion, Emil has faced a harrowing episode at sea, Ted has risked his brother's life, Dan has been confronted by the law, and more. But although Jo still worries over her flock and continues to moralize, she does come to the realization that there is only so much a mother can do, before letting her children go off into the world alone and trust that they will remember everything they've been taught. While this book brings with it the characteristic bustle and color of the previous two, there is also a certain sadness. It's apparent that Plumfield reached its height during the years the Bhaers' children were small, and a certain emptiness rings throughout the pages. Readers may feel sad as though though they were bidding farewell to real friends, never to see them again. However, it is a sign of a true writer when someone can make you feel that way.
