Awesome reflection on Little Women from one of you!

Yesterday I saw comments from a new reader, Jillian, where she posted a link to her amazing reflection on Little Women. This is a must read – see it on her blog. She’s set a goal of reading 250 great works of literature. Best of luck with that, Jillian: I’ll follow your progress. 🙂

I can’t say it enough how much each of you reading and commenting on this blog has made it great. It would be nothing without you!

Psssst! P.S. Soon I will be giving away a free copy of the new paperback issue of Harriet Reisen’s Louisa May Alcott, the Woman Behind Little Women . . . watch for a contest to win this free copy. I wrote a review of this book in an earlier post.

  1. I highly recommend this book. Great information and welll written. I’m disappointed that I missed the author speak in Albany. 😦

  2. Isn’t it this one that inspired you to start this blog? (Woman Behind Little Women) I checked Jillian’s review, it’s truly amazing! That’s about taking LMA to heart.

  3. Thank you so much for this, Susan! I’m honored – and of course I’m a follower as of last night when I discovered you. 🙂

    Little Women and Alcott are certainly worthy of all this discussion. 🙂

    Really a pleasure to meet you, Susan (and Mia!) You ladies gave me a big smile tonight.

  4. It was so powerful of Jillian to write this, and I’m deeply moved that she did. She also introduced me to your blog … and I’m so glad! I feel Louisa and I are kindred spirits, and my mother named me “Meg”, as you can see. I read “Little Women” for the first time as a 10-year-old and always identified with Jo. I, too, wanted a stable with horses and a magic inkwell to make my stories famous. I reread it at least once a year and cry like a baby. I cry because it feels familiar and cry because I wish it was my life and cry because it isn’t. Your blog is wonderful and I’m glad I found it.

    1. Meg, welcome to our little group! I’m really glad you found us.

      I see you are an historical fiction writer. My best friend from childhood did that too. She unfortunately died way too soon (in her 40s from cancer), nipping a promising career in the bud. She was writing a historical detective series (the main character was Julian Kestrel, I believe) and her name was Kate Ross. As kids I always knew she was destined to write and was soooo happy when she got published.

      Are you working on a book now, have you been published? Tell us about it!

      1. Oh dearie, I’m ALWAYS working on a book! lol, I just get all these ideas in my head that gander about and I can’t – won’t? couldn’t? – get them all down fast enough. My debut novel is about a kid who quits the wealthy life and joins the Civil War with three friends. It’s free to anyone who wants to read it, just let me know. 🙂 I’ve got another that I just finished plotting the other weekend, a third that’s got a decent plot and characters but no particular, and an old children’s chapter book I wrote when I was ten that I’ll dust off and rework in the future. 🙂 …. Erm, that was probably way more than you wanted to know, but hop over to my blog to see more: http://megnorth.blogspot.com
