Publisher's Summary

"Eight Cousins, or The Aunt Hill" was published in 1875 by American novelist Louisa May Alcott. It is the story of Rose Campbell, a lonely and sickly girl who has been recently orphaned and must now reside with her maiden aunts, the matriarchs of her wealthy Boston family.

When Rose's guardian, Uncle Alec, returns from abroad, he takes over her care. Through his unorthodox theories about child rearing, she becomes happier and healthier while finding her place in her family of seven boy cousins and numerous aunts and uncles.

She also makes friends with Phebe, her aunts' young housemaid, whose cheerful attitude in the face of poverty helps Rose to understand and value her own good fortune.

one of my favorites as a kid

loved sharing it with my kids. the reader was kind of monotone, would have liked a little more emotion. also, her pronunciation of some words was different.

For Alcott fans only

I don't know why I tried to listen to Eight Cousins when I didn't enjoy Little Women or Little Men. At any rate I did not finish Eight Cousins, I found it painful like too much sugar to ones teeth. This is definitely for children or Alcott fans.
