This is the second half of Little Women( )
  leslie.98 | Jun 26, 2013 |
To be perfectly honest, I didn't know LMA had written this book. After reading it I realized that the "Little Women" movies I have seen combine this book with "Little Women".

This book picks up with Meg's wedding, which happens 3 years after "Little Women" ends. It goes on in much the same way as "Little Women", telling girls lives, Meg as a young wife and mother, Amy the artist going abroad with family, Jo the favorite Aunty and struggling writer, and beloved sweet Beth, even though I pretty sure most of the free world knows what happens, I'm not going to say it here, just in case.

When this book ends the girls are married women with babies. The ending sets up the next book in the series "Little Men". ( )

I didn't like this book anywhere near so much as I did the first. Still, it had Jo, which made it worth reading in my eyes. ( )

Jo want to become writer .So I wanted to cheer up her.
This is a peaceful story . I like this very much . ( )

This story is about four sister's each episode.
The main character is Jo.
They lived togeter but aiter that they lead own life.

I think Jo was nice person because if I were her,I couldn't celebrate for Aymy.
This book was interesting,I couldn't the last. ( )
