Goodreads: The timeless classic Little Women inspired this heartwarming modern tale of four sisters from New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra.
The March sisters–reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy Beth–have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger.
Meg appears to have the life she always planned–the handsome husband, the adorable toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting everything you’ve ever wanted isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
When their mother’s illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they’ll rediscover what really matters.
One thing’s for sure–they’ll need the strength of family and the power of sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams.
Ope’s Opinion: If you are a fan of Little Women – you will definitely want to pick this book up. I just saw Little Women in the theatre, so it was interesting to read this book right after that. I enjoyed comparing the movie to the book in my head while I was reading it.
Virginia Kantra wrote a sequel called Beth & Amy. I am not sure if the story picks up where this one left off or are we going to see the same story from Beth & Amy’s perspective? I think I would have preferred to have all four little women in one book.
