Good Wives is Hard to Find

A charming follow up to Little Women, Good Wives usually takes the Mar girls three years on. Meg is about to marry, Jo is usually attempting to launch a literary profession and rein in her headstrong dynamics, Beth has suffered terribly right from scarlet fever, and Amy is growing up and growing old rapidly. Girls still have much to know, but this time their lives are much more serious. Louisa May Alcott is very Victorian in her theories, emphasising the need for girls to be obedient, do it yourself governing and faithful to God. For a few modern readers this can be a bit too preachy.
