I found myself feeling a little sorry for Elinor Brent-Dyer, who was not very successful as an educator, though she later became one of the most popular writer of series books for girls. She never experienced the opportunity for marriage and motherhood that Jo and most of her other characters do as they grow up. Still, her books have a cozy charm that still appeals to many girls today.
