Book Review: Good Wives by Louisa May Alcott - Reviewed by CloggieA (15 Jul 2012)
Good Wives is the second part of Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, and was written a year after Little Women. It is set some 3 years after Little Women, and starts with Meg’s wedding to John Brooke. It details Jo’s successes with writing, at first with less than literary works and later with her novel, Amy’s social interactions and ambitions to marry well, and Beth’s declining health and eventual death. Laurie, Mr & Mrs March and Mr Laurence all make appearances, and Jo eventually finds true love, but not with her boy Laurie. Trips to Europe and New York, and events in the lives of the March girls all serve as vehicle for the various morals that Alcott wishes to espouse or demonstrate, including how to be a good wife, being true to oneself, turning the other cheek and, being charitable. Amy discovers that morals can be decidedly inconvenient. Living in the 21st century and the age of antibiotics makes it difficult to relate to the circumstances...
Author Biography - Louisa May Alcott
Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to supplement the family income and had many short stories published in magazines and newspapers. Then, in 1862, during the height of the American Civil War, Louisa went to Georgetown to work as a nurse, but she contracted typhoid. Out of her experiences she wrote Hospital Sketches (1864) which won wide acclaim, followed by an adult novel, Moods. She was reluctant to write a children's book but then realized that in herself and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest American children's novel to become a classic
