Before she wrote Little Women, Louisa May Alcott told this story of a ninteenth-century girl finding her way in society.

In this sequel to Eight Cousins, Rose Campbell returns to the “Aunt Hill” after two years of traveling around the world. Suddenly, she is surrounded by male admirers, all expecting her to marry them.

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. What began as a series of stories in the 1860s became the classic American children's novel we know today as Little Women.

From Our Editors

 The sequel to Eight Cousins, Rose in Bloom is a fine example of Louisa May Alcott’s ability to write moralistic fiction in a fun and engaging tone. While not as well-known or popular as the Little Women books, these two stories about the orphan Rose Campbell and her life at “Aunt Hill” with her six aunts and seven boy cousins still resonates with many readers. Published in a Puffin Classics edition, the sequel catches up with Rose, now a young woman and back from two years abroad. But what Rose has to contend with now that she’s grown into a lovely and eligible lady is the attentions of many male admirers — and her need to show that she’s an independent person with her own ideas about life in general and right and wrong in particular!
