These little women came alive for me and I felt as if they were my own sisters. I cried with them, laughed with them and was outraged for them. The sorrow I felt for the loss of Beth was real. I loved all the little moral teachings Alcott sprinkled in and I am left feeling very thankful and optimistic about my life. I have my own castles in the sky, but think that whatever God's plan is I will end up as happy as the March women if I live my life as kindly! I fell in love with Laurie and since I most related to Jo I was green with envy over Amy's marriage. On reflection I can see that Jo really wasn't in love with Laurie and his marriage to Amy was just perfect. I didn't want the story to end and I still miss Beth. These characters will stay with me for a long long time and I hope one day to have a little daughter (or more) that I can share this book with.
