Sorry for sitting on this book for so long. Basically i've tried to read it but I keep picking up and putting it back down again because the oober sweetness of all the characters sets my teeth on edge a little. Will give it another go this week and then may just have to post it on without completing it. Thanks for your patience so far.

Ok so i gave up on this book but maybe i just didn't try hard enough. For the time being it needs to keep travelling though so it's off to Nancy Nova in the US of A where hopefully it will provide a more appreciative audience. Thanks to everyone for their patience.

Forgot I signed up for this ray! It's joining it's compadres on the TBR shelf - and will be read soon. I think I read this as a preteen maybe? (Oodles of years ago!). Will see how the reading goes now as an adult. Sugariness in other j/e's noted!

It's now the train commute book. I can already say, it won't be a speed read - small print, lot of description.

Journal Entry 10 by wingNancyNovawing at Lansdale, Pennsylvania USA on Sunday, July 04, 2010
Mostly done d/t the long holiday weekend here in the states. PM'd the next reader for her address.

Journal Entry 11 by wingNancyNovawing at Lansdale, Pennsylvania USA on Monday, July 05, 2010
This was written 140+ years ago, in what was the author's current day AND very US-centric in that the authors assumes you know that Father is off serving the union side of the Civil War. And she assumed that whomever read her book were the ones who could afford her book - the genteel ladies of the New England Society - so those customs weren't explained either.

It's also very heavily weighted to the Protestant religion - again, a predominant religion amongst the genteel of New England.

I enjoyed the book - I knew from my younger years that there wasn't much "action", just mostly a day to day account of the four March girls. I had forgotten (or maybe didn't notice) how they each identified their "faults" as was proper for gently reared ladies to do at the time, and work to remedy them so they would fit into the mold society dictated for them as wives and mothers.

Now the book is off to the UK for the next reader.
