USA TODAY sings that “Fans of Louisa May Alcott can rejoice” thanks to this charming and uplifting story of the imagined lives of three of Jo March’s passionate, spirited descendants—that’s Jo March from Little Women!

With her older sister, Emma, planning a wedding and her younger sister, Sophie, preparing to launch a career on the London stage, Lulu can’t help but feel like the failure of the Atwater family. Lulu loves her sisters dearly and wants nothing but the best for them, but she finds herself stuck in a rut, working dead-end jobs with no romantic prospects in sight.

Then Lulu stumbles across a collection of letters written by her great-great-grandmother Josephine March. As she delves deeper into the lives and secrets of the March sisters, she finds solace and guidance, but can the words of her great-great-grandmother help Lulu find a place for herself in a world so different from the one Jo knew?

As uplifting and essential as Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Gabrielle Donnelly’s novel will speak to anyone who’s ever fought with a sister, fallen in love with a fabulous pair of shoes, or wondered what on earth life had in store for her.

Review:

"Donnelly's "The Little Women Letters" imagines how modern versions of the March sisters might have lived. . . . Donnelly writes with obvious passion for the classic take and successfully applies a fresh sensibility to the three modern sisters. Nostalgic without being deferential, jocular without being flippant...Beautifully crafted." --"Booklist"

"[A] light, spirited tale about modern women with old-fashioned values." --"Publishers Weekly"

"I LOVED this book - it was like a personal treasure trove. The letters sound just exactly as if Jo had written them, and isn't it what we'd always wanted and thought we could never have - more of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy?" --Penny Vincenzi, author of "The Best of Times"

"Witty, warm, and bubbling over with voice, "The Little Women Letters" is a love letter to and from a set of unforgettable heroines. Gabrielle Donnelly's homage is just what a literary tribute should be: full of compassion, heart, and fun." - - Erin Blakemore, author of "The Heroine's Bookshelf: Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder"

"Gabrielle Donnelly's absorbing novel sweeps you across time and generations of family, bound together through love and the strife and joys of daily life. A refreshingly hopeful story that grips you so thoroughly you'll want to lock your door and read, read, read!" --Carol Cassella, author of "Healer "and "Oxygen"

"Marvelously entertaining, Gabrielle Donnelly's THE LITTLE WOMEN LETTERS evokes the spirit of Louisa May Alcott's LITTLE WOMEN with warmth and affection. I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this wonderful book." --Jennifer Chiaverini, author of the "New York Times" bestselling Elm Creek Quilts novels

"Gabrielle Donnelly's THE LITTLE WOMEN LETTERS radiates a rare warmth and charm that had me smiling from beginning to end. The characters absolutely live, and the story is utterly compelling. I quite simply love Donnelly's voice!" ---Santa Montefiore, author of "The French Gardener" and "The Mermaid Garden"

"A sheer delight, full of gentle humor and homespun wisdom." --Katie Fforde, author of "Love Letters "

"For those who yearn for the verve and wit and chagrin of Alcott, 'The Little Women Letters' offers a thoroughly modern . . . twist." --"Seattle Times"

"Could be just the perfect pool-side read." --"The Washington Post"
