Excerpt

ot a pretty girl, nor one that you would care to look at twice, because of any pleasure it gave you; though had you really studied her face there might have been something found in it after all. There was a drawn, discontented look about her mouth, that made the lips look thin and snappish; it even spoiled the shape of her really pretty nose, which was straight and finely cut. The brows, straight and black, held a heavy frown between them, and the eyes beneath had an unsatisfied, sour look, not at all attractive. Her forehead was altogether too high for beauty of any kind; and as though there was a relief in making herself look just as ugly as possible, all her hair was drawn back painfully smooth, and tucked into a net. Everything about her, from the crooked look of her necktie to the toe of her slipper, with its rosette gone, plainly indicated that she was dissatisfied with herself and aided nature by her own carelessness and indifference, to make herself just as unattractive as possible. Some one came up

This is a very sweet story, nicely written. It does resemble Little Women. It is a very pleasant way to spend a few escapist hours. Enjoy.

****.

Wholesome, somewhat religious and romantic bildungsroman about six poor, sweet sisters growing to womanhood -- very much influenced by "Little Women," although these girls don't quite have the liveliness and spirit of Louisa May Alcott's heroines. The novel very conventionally concludes with weddings for most of the sisters, as if marriage were the be-all and end-all of any girl's life, but overall, the characterizations are good and the writing engaging.

This is a really great book about six sisters and their lives. I enjoyed it.
