Little Woman in Blue: A Novel of May Alcott - Jeannine Atkins

4 stars!  #LittleWomaninBlue  SHE WRITES PRESS  JEANNINE ATKINS
Wow, this book really took me back. I read Little Women and Little Men back when I was a teenager. What good books they were, and they weren't required! I got a little thrown when the character names were different, then I realized this was a true book about the real Alcott sisters (well, from what the author could find through research) and how the books got published and how their life really was. It was also confusing me, because I didn't remember the dad ever being around, I always thought he was off to war to or something.

It was nice to reminisce as I loved those books growing up and to see how the sisters, well some of them, really lived and grew up.

I think the author wrote a nice story, I'm not sure how much is real and how much is fiction, but I liked it all the same. I was thoroughly entertained and found the story to be very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend the book!
