With her older sister planning a wedding and her younger sister preparing to launch a career on the stage, Lulu can't help but feel like the failure of the Atwater family. Lulu loves her sisters dearly and wants nothing but the best for them, but she finds herself stuck in a rut. When her mother sends her to look for some old family recipes in the attic, she stumbles across a collection of letters written by her great-great-grandmother Josephine March. Jo writes in detail about every aspect of her life: her older sister Meg's new home and family; her younger sister Amy's many admirers; the family's shared grief over losing Beth; and her own feelings towards a handsome young German. As Lulu delves deeper into the lives of the March sisters, she finds solace and guidance, but can her great-great-grandmother help Lulu find a place in a world so different from the one Jo knew?--From publisher description.

This book took me a while to get into. I didn't understand the letters or the purpose until a bit later. I found the chapters too long and because of this it was hard to stay focused. It took me 2 months to get through this book when I can get through a book in 1-2 weeks. I did enjoy this read and I'm glad I finally finished it. I don't think I'd read the series though.

If you loved *Little Women,* especially if you were Jo's "kindred spirit" (to quote from *Anne of Green Gables*), you'll probably enjoy this. The premise is that the three sisters descend from Jo; Lulu, the main character, is a quirky Londoner who discovers great-great-grandmother Jo's letters in her parents' attic. A great summer, chick-lit read--assuming you love the Marches and their descendants.
