From Our Editors

 Readers will detect a little early feminism in this wonderful “girl’s” story by Little Women author Louisa May Alcott. Orphaned at the age of 13, frail Rose Campbell falls under the guardianship of her uncle Alec, who is a doctor that believes in tomboys — and who happens to live with Rose’s six aunts and seven cousins. Going off to live at the aptly named “Aunt Hill,” Rose is a pale, thin, heartsick little girl, overwhelmed by her boisterous cousins — all boys — and the influx of feminine companionship in the form of her many aunts. But soon, under the careful care of her progressive uncle and thanks to the friendship of her chambermaid, Phebe, Rose starts to live up to her name and bloom in her new surroundings. Eight Cousins is an enchanting tale of family and affection, presented in this Puffin Classics edition.
