Little Women

Today marks the anniversary (in 1868) of the publication of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women! This was one of the books that fed my childhood addiction to history (along with stuff like Anne of Green Gables, I Capture the Castle, Secret Garden and A Little Princess, the "Little House on the Prairie" books, and Jane Eyre). I was addicted to all things Victorian, and if the story featured a heroine who wanted to be a writer, so much the better! I also loved the family dynamics between the March sisters (since I always wanted a sister myself). I think I need to find my old copy and do some re-reading this evening....
