Three years on from Little Women, the March girls and their friend Laurie are young adults with their futures to find. Although they all face painful trials along the way – from Meg’s sad lesson in housekeeping to Laurie’s disappointment in love and the tragedy that touches them all – each of the girls finally finds happiness, if not always the way they expect.
I had such mixed feelings reading this book. Some of the chapters I loved and others I just couldn’t get into. It just didn’t come close to Little Women for me. I didn’t like the fact that the March sisters were separated from each other and I think that made the book lose a lot of what made Little Women so good. For me, the relationship between the sisters was what I loved about the first book and I was disappointed that it was largely absent in this book. For instance, Meg was barely featured and I found Amy’s travel stories boring as she was without her family to be honest. But other chapters I just loved. In particular at the very start of the book when we saw more of Meg and the other three sisters were together. Again towards the end I found that the sisterly relationship came back. The middle parts were what I had issue with and I found myself struggling through it and only reading a few pages at a time before I got bored. Overall, not as good as Little Women but still a decent enough read.
