Waiting on Wednesday: The Little Women Letters

'Waiting On' Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
 


 The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly

Publisher: Michael Joseph
Release Date: 26th May 2011

Summary (Waterstones):
 
When Josephine March's great-great-granddaughter stumbles across her letters, the "Little Women" shed a glorious light on a new generation of sisters. The Atwaters are a loving, sprawling mess of a family and Fee's three daughters, Emma, Lulu and Sophie couldn't be less alike if they tried. Emma is planning her wedding, Sophie is an up-and-coming actress, but Lulu - the cleverest of them all - is more than a little lost. If life is for living, why is she stuck in a series of dead-end jobs? Grandma Jo's letters had been gathering dust in the attic for decades, but when Lulu gets her hands on them, everything seems to change and different worlds begin to open up. And even though dark family secrets emerge, Jo's words offer comfort and guidance across the centuries. Sometimes family is all that matters. And sisters are the closest friends you can find.
 I read Little Women when I was 8 and fell in love with it. I don't remember much of the story now, but I remember how much I loved reading the story and wanting to be a March sister. I pretty much read anything linked to Little Women.
