Review: The Quiet Little Woman (Louisa M. Alcott)

I enjoyed the three short stories in this book. (Only one mentioned in the description below.) Not such which was my favourite, but they were all good. I’m glad I picked up the book from a library Christmas display. 🙂

“If someone would only come and take me away! I’m so tired of living here I don’t think I can bear it much longer,” Patty cries. Patty’s life in an orphanage is a dark world with little hope, beauty, or love. Even after a family finally does come for Patty, it is only because they need a servant. But there is one person who does care about Patty. And soon Patty’s life will never be the same!

In the 1870s, Louisa May Alcott made friends with five earnest fans of her best-selling “Little Women.” The young Lukens girls had written to Miss Alcott telling her that they were so inspired by the examples of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, that they, too, were launching their own literary publication. Soon the Lukens girls received a very special gift – a Christmas story from Miss Alcott about a lonely orphan girl who finds a family to love her. Following its publication, the story stayed in an old magazine until many years later, a reader chanced upon it.
