Madao (andromeda_horse) | 6 comments There's this classic I came across a review for giving example of strong female leads, but I can't seem to remember. I don't remember exactly, but something happens, like maybe her father died, and then that girl moves in with her cousin's or friend's family, and it's basically about her life there. The details are vague, sorry for that.

Maybe... Mansfield Park? Although the heroine isn't strong at all. There are so many classics that have a premise like this. Jane Eyre starts this way.

Pamela Love | 1087 comments Possibly An Old-Fashioned Girl, by Louisa May Alcott? An Old-Fashioned Girl

or Eight Cousins, also by Louisa May Alcott? Eight Cousins

Or They Loved to Laugh? They Loved to Laugh

I was looking through Mansfield Park description and clicked on the recommendation section, and it seemed that I found the book I was looking for by chance! Though it hardly matched the description I gave in this post, but I am looking forward to read all the books mentioned here!

And it was Wives and Daughters?

Yes Lakhsesis what was the book? Inquiring minds (and dusty, empty bookcases) want to know.

Yes, I’m eager to know as well and I’m glad that I was able to help!
