9780099573692: Good Wives (Vintage Children's Classics)

The sequel to Little Women includes character guide, story quiz, author info, instructions on making jam, and a glossary

Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy have grown up together in Orchard House with their friend Laurie next door, and now it's time for them to go out and find their places in the big wide world; to do the great and marvelous things they've dreamed of and discover their "castles in the air." They each find themselves tested, and fall in love, but when tragedy strikes they find their best comfort is in each other, and home.

About the Author:

Louisa May Alcott (1832–1888) is the author of  Little Women and its three sequels, Good Wives, Little Men, and Jo's Boys.

From AudioFile:

Alcott's "little women" continue their story in Good Wives, a tale that follows them into adulthood. Herbert brings characters as diverse as the guttural Mr. Baer and the Irish Hannah to life but struggles to differentiate the four girls, making Jo take on a rough, mannish tone while Beth is almost otherworldly. In truth, her voice is better suited to the older characters, whose scenes flow seamlessly until another youngster interjects a word. Listeners may find Herbert's deep intonations, while clear and consistent, too heavy for such a gentle tale. She paces the story well, though, and true fans of Alcott will find the interpretation of the work worth their time. K.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
