Reviews by Barbara Zimmerman

An Old-fashioned Girl

by Louisa May Alcott

This book is very well written and the characters well-developed and consistent in their actions. The story is constructed so that my mind is transported into the scenes.

I always consider LM Alcott as a sort of anthropological freeze-frame on middle-class life in the period around the Civil War. It is a pleasant way to while away a few hours.
