WARNING -Contains Spoilers about Little Women
You might notice quite a few of our posts are inspired by Little Women. It is one of Helen's favourite books and brings great comfort in the way only treasured books from childhood can. Who doesn't remember the first time they cry over Beth dying?
For me I think the identification with feisty independent Jo who loves books and writing as a young girl who also loved books and writing was the crucial thing that set Little Women (and Good Wives and Jo's Boys) apart for me.
