Recently orphaned, young Rose Campbell is sent to the "Aunt Hill", where Uncle Alex, her six aunts, and seven boy cousins live in noisy confusion. It is nothing like the quiet girls’ boarding school that has been Rose’s home for the past year. Surrounded by a bewildering array of pets, relatives, and unfamiliar foods, the fragile girl wonders if she will ever get used to this new life. Fortunately, Uncle Alex is her guardian. He keeps the aunts from coddling her too much, and makes sure that she has plenty of time to play outside with her cousins.
Day by day, learning how to care for each of these people, Rose begins to bloom. Eight Cousins is a charming introduction to Louisa May Alcott’s timeless classics, which include Little Women and Little Men. Barbara Caruso’s colorful narration perfectly captures Rose and her extended family.

Full of heart
When they go to the mountains and find an outdoor way of life marvelous.
This is my 1st book by Barbara Caruso. There were multiple times while listening in public that I had to choke back a sob or blink away a tear. She is excellent.
Uncle Alex's love for his orphaned niece.
It is wholesome. No swearing, sex or violence. No taking the Lord's name in vain. Just people being interesting in their thoughts. I think this could be enjoyed by boys and girls.
