I don’t really have a summary because I wasn’t really interested/paying attention. It seems Rose (raised with a bunch of boy cousins – I know this from the previous book) was away and has returned. I think she might now be looking for a husband. If she isn’t, others are (Phoebe?), as there is lots of talk of “lovers”. Oh, I do remember Rose wanted to become a philanthropist.

I listened to the audio, but neither the narrator nor the story made this interesting enough to really listen to what was going on. I rarely paid attention. Oh, and cousins getting married kind of creeps me out. ( )

Six years have passed since the end of [Eight Cousins]. Rose, Phebe, and Uncle Alec have been in Europe for the last two, but now they have returned home. Both Rose and Phebe are trying to find their place in the world. Rose's cousins have mostly grown up (Jamie is still a kid); Archie falls in love with Phebe, and Charlie with Rose. But Charlie encounters problems in his life, and Rose is unwilling to marry him. She does try to help him overcome his difficulties. Meanwhile, Mac is studying medicine under Uncle Alec's tutelage, but also dreaming of greatness in other endeavors. He introduces Rose to Emerson's essays.

While [Eight Cousins] is a children's book, [Rose in Bloom] is more young adult in its themes. While Rose expresses her concerns about marriage to the wrong person in 19th century moralizing fashion, she does have a point. ( )

Rose is just so unrelentingly good. It came across as rather preacher. I wonder how she would deal with Rose and Charlie's relationship. I didn't see how it could end well. ( )

First words
Three young men stood together on a wharf one bright October day, awaiting the arrival of an ocean steamer with an impatience which found a vent in lively skirmishes with a small lad, who pervaded the premises like a will-o'-the-wisp, and afforded much amusement to the other groups assembled there.

Book description
"We've got minds and souls as well as hearts; ambition and talent as well as beauty and accomplishments; and we want to live and learn as well as love and be loved."

This irresistible novel continues the story of Rose Campbell. Though still under the tutelage of Uncle Alec, she is now coming of age and must decide where her future lies. Each of her aunts wants Rose to marry their son - largely because they love her, but also because of her considerable fortune. As Rose vacillates between frivolity and philanthropy, as cousin Archie scandalises the family by falling in love with her "adopted" companion Phoebe, handsome, reckless Charlie seems to be Rose's favoured suitor...In this memorable tale, the companion volume to Eight Cousins, Louisa May Alcott again questions the constraints and hyprocrisies that bind young women.
