Grade 6 Up-At the age of 13, Rose finds herself orphaned and living with two elderly aunts on "Aunt Hill" where she is treated as delicately as the flower for which she is named. But Rose soon finds her quiet world turned upside down with the arrival of her seven boisterous boy cousins followed by her Uncle Alec, a doctor and a world traveler. Upon meeting Rose, Uncle Alec quickly prescribes fresh air and much activity to help with the girl's poor constitution. Uncle Alec's diagnosis turns out to be an accurate one and Rose, with the help of her cousins, finds herself in the middle of much hijinx and merriment. Veteran stage actress Barbara Caruso brilliantly breaths life into each and every one of Louisa May Alcott's delightful characters. With just the slightest change of inflection she is able to capture the essence of each character from the oldest to the very youngest. This audiobook would be an asset to any collection.

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American writer. She is best known for her autobiographical novel Little Women (1868), set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts. Little Women was published in 1868. This novel is loosely based on her childhood experiences with her three sisters. Alcott based the heroine from Little Women, Jo, on herself, but whereas Jo marries at the end of the story, Alcott never married. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
