    Little Women itself “has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth.” Little Women has been read “as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well.” Alcott “combines many conventions of the sentimental novel with crucial ingredients of Romantic children's fiction, creating a new form of which Little Women is a unique model.”

    Once upon a time. Happily ever after. Such are the classic promises of fairy tales. Yet in Texas we find a twist to the familiar storyline. In If the Devil Had a Wife, there is still the battle of Good vs. Evil, a beautiful maiden, a wealthy suitor, a kingdom of riches and the wicked witch, but any similarity with Cinderella and Snow White ends there. With the help of her life partner and an attorney (always necessary in these modern times), Nelda Stark executes a devious plan that elevates fraud and theft to a new high.

    There's a new embittered-fellow movement called "Men Going Their Own Way" that has Susie scratching her head. What's up with these guys? Why are they spending so much time talking about lesbians? Susie reads postings from an online forum, and these mostly straight-and-narrow guys have the weirdest take on bisexuals and homosexuals. Looks like some of the "going-their-own-wayers" are heading in a strange, asexual direction.

Laurie remains irrepressible, with his high spirits and sense of fun, though his pursuit of Jo’s affections seems unlikely to succeed....

    Historical photographs are on display at the museum of St. Francis Mission on the Arapaho reservation, and history seems doomed to repeat itself. A descendant of the tribal chief who appeared in the pictures has been shot to death, and the museum's curator has disappeared. The two incidents may be linked to a near century-old murder.
