Thoughtful...An adroit consideration of Alcott and her milieu.--Meghan Cox Gurdon (08/03/2018)
Highly companionable and illuminating.--Mark Rozzo (08/03/2018)
Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why It Still Matters masterfully peels away the layers of complexity in Louisa May Alcott's classic novel. Reflecting astute research and scholarship, Rioux's book is immensely entertaining and informative, and can be easily enjoyed by teachers, scholars, and the multitude of Little Women lovers around the world.-- (08/03/2018)
