From Our Editors

Little Women was so popular that readers demanded more stories about Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March. So Louisa May Alcott delivered just that to her fans in Good Wives, the sequel to the first book and the last one to deal with the March sisters exclusively. This story sees some changes to the girls and their fortunes, as the war is now over and Mr. March has returned to his all-female household. Laurie has fallen madly in love with the independent-spirited Jo, whose literary ambitions have taken her away from home and to the big, wicked city of New York. Meg has married her Mr. Brooke, but finds life as a wife has its share of trials. Amy, as pretty and fickle as ever, also learns some hard lessons, but after she finds true love, returns from Europe a more mature and gentle woman. Although it lacks the sheer vigour of the first book, the sequel nonetheless is a very satisfying read for those who long to continue their relationship with the delightful March girls.
