Rose Campbell, tired and ill, has come to live at "The Aunt Hill" after the death of her beloved father. Six aunts fussing and fretting over her are bad enough, but what is a quiet 13-year-old girl to do with seven boisterous boy cousins?
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, and began her writing career at an early age, with short stories for newspapers and magazines. Best known for what began as a series of stories in the 1860s to the classic American children's novel we know today as Little Women.

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.
