Charming story with a moral lesson, classic themes of love, class distinction, poverty vs. riches, and a gentle essence of feminism as it should be - strong, good, intelligent, kind women who are independent and able to take care of themselves while remaining feminine- that is this author's ideal.

What a pleasant book to listen to. Written in true Louisa May Alcott style, the characters are lovable and you will find yourself rooting for a happy outcome from the start. Jeannette Selig reads with a dreamy captivating voice. Very well done.
