A Sequel to Little Women
Louisa May Alcott continues the story of her feisty protagonist Jo in this final novel chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the March family. Entertaining, surprising, and overall a joy to read, Jo's Boys is nevertheless shaded by a bittersweet tone, for with it Alcott brought her wonderful series to an end. Proudly witnessing the coming-of-age of rebellious Dan, sailor Emil, and musician Nat, Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer, preside over their school while encountering shipwreck, storm, disappointment, and murder.
Sometimes this book makes you cry and sometimes makes you laugh. If you are reading it for the first time it introduces you to a new world, the world of wonder i.e the world of books with pupils from the Plumfield coming back. Happy reading!--Submitted by Eina
