Good Wives

By: Louisa May Alcott
Narrated by: Lorelei King

Publisher's Summary

Good Wives continues the story of the Little Women, the March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, as they approach womanhood. Meg longs to begin her new life with John Brook, though they can never be rich; Jo returns to devote herself to literature, and to Beth, whose illness has left her weak but whose serenity shines through the household; and Amy has gone to Aunt March, bribed with the offer of drawing lessons. Laurie remains irrepressible, with his high spirits and sense of fun, though his pursuit of Jo’s affections seems unlikely to succeed…

Not a new story

This is just parts taken from Little Women. Very disappointed and a waste of money

Good Wives

The overall sorry is interesting. I find the upper-class pompousness a bit trying. The narration was well done. Worth the read.

Stilted narration ruined it for me

I couldn’t get past the 1st chapter. The narration was so stilted that I couldn’t pay attention to the story.
