Reader's note

A rare purple and gold, decorative edition of Good Wives. The popular sequel to Louisa May Alcott's successful novel, Little Women. Once again the reader enters the world of the March sisters, a few years on from where the first story ended. Find out how Meg and John's relationship has furthered, as well as Jo and Laurie. Did Amy pursue the career she was set on, and has poor Beth's health improved?

“Laurie thought the task of forgetting his love for Jo would absorb all his powers for years; but, to his surprise, he discovered it grew easier every day. He refused to believe it at first,--got angry with himself, and couldn't understand it; but these hearts of ours are curious and contrary things, and time and nature work their will in spite of us. Laurie's heart wouldn't ache; the wound persisted in healing with a rapidity that astonished him, and, instead of trying to forget, he found himself trying to remember.

This is a scarce edition from 1891, published in 'The Lily Series' by Ward, Lock & Co. Just one of the many antique, rare and obscure books available on our online vintage bookstore!
