Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Three young men stood together on a wharf one bright October day, awaiting the arrival of an ocean steamer with an impatience which found a vent in lively skirmishes with a small lad, who pervaded the premises like a will-o'-the-wisp, and afforded much amusement to the other groups assembled there. Read the first page

After I read Eight Cousins, which I loved, of course I decided to read this book. The book is about Rose, and her life as a woman, & her relationships with her male cousins. The book wasn't as good as Eight Cousins, and much more confusing.
I would suggest that you only read this book after you have read Eight Cousins, because the starts right away, with no intro, so Eight Cousins prepares you.
ENJOY!!!

Format: Paperback
This sequel to "Eight Cousins" is one of Louisa May Alcott's masterpieces. I loved it as a girl, I loved it as a teenager, and I love it now. Even though it was written in Victorian times, it has a truth and honesty to it that survives into today--and the problems that Rose encounters as a young woman will be familiar to any modern reader.
Why are women fascinated by--and drawn to--the bad boys of this world? That question did not originate with James Dean or "The Leader of the Pack." It is very much alive in this book, as Rose returns from Europe to find her eight cousins very much grown up--and very, very interesting. In particular, her wild and handsome cousin Charlie, now grown into a wild and handsome man, captures Rose's heart. But Charlie is on a dangerous path to alcoholism and self-destruction. Will Rose see this in time, and will she turn to the man who really loves her with all his heart and soul? And what of her dear friend Phoebe, whose ethnic background might keep her from the man she loves?
Sounds like a 2002 soap opera. But it isn't--and it is written with such depth, such love, and such talent that it has survived over a century. Alcott was so much more than "Little Women" and this book, among others, proves it.

This is the kind of book you wish would go on forever. It defines the word classic in every way. Everytime I read it, I fall in love with Rose, Mac, Uncle Alec and the others over and over again. It is one of my most favourite books (and seriously, in my opinion and in the opinion of many others I'm sure, it is BETTER than Little Women!!) It doesn't matter if you're young or old..... NEVER PASS THIS BOOK UP!! You will laugh, you will cry, and like me, you will wish it would never end.

I know it's heresy, but as a girl I loved this more than Little Women. And upon re-reading it as an adult, I still do. Yes, it's a little preachy, as many of Alcott's stories are, but just skip those bits! Rather, pay attention to the marvelous interplay among the characters--especially as Rose has to decide just who she is truly in love with. What also struck me was that so many issues she faces are the same as she'd face today--Rose goes to too many parties, her favorite cousin has a drinking problem, her best friend is scorned. But best of all: the right man gets her in the end!

For all those who thought that Rose's story ended with Eight Cousins here is the truth about what happened to these beloved characters.
The innocence found in the first book is slowly lifted here as Rose enters into the real world after her return from Europe. All but one of the characters from the first book make a return in this charming sequel.
The cousins are older as well and have found love. The heartwarming challeneges these lovers go through are refreshing in their innocence. Even Jamie is not immune to the talk of love and his innocene candor on the matter is very amusing.
Rose In Bloom answers many questions one has at the end of cousins. Yet like any fan will know not everyone can be happy with all the outcomes of the sequel.
A great book for fans of Eight Cousins.

Decidedly, I do NOT like Rose in Bloom. I love all of Louisa May Alcott's other books, but I don't like romances, and I could tell in the first few chapters what was going to happen in the end of the book. I love Eight Cousins, but I have no fancy whatsoever to Rose in Bloom. I think that anyone who likes romance and the older Rose Campbell will like this book, and I think anyone who does not will share my opinon.

When I was a kid, my parents bought me the hardback version of Louisa May Alcott's books ~~ but the series didn't include this book. I have always loved "The Eight Cousins" and when I found out about this one ~~ I was a kid then ~~ I fell in love with Rose and her cousins even more. Now that I am an adult, I still love this book.
Rose isn't a sickly child anymore and she's on the threshold of becoming a fine woman ~~ and two of her cousins were in love with her. This book talks about her journey into adulthood and the dilemma she faced in choosing her husband ~~ and it's a wonderfully written book.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who has read "The Little Women" or even "The Eight Cousins" as Alcott's writing style is timeless. This is a classic book that I bought for my own children to read. This should be in everyone's library.

Actually, I must say that I was very surprised after finishing both "Eight Cousins" and "Rose in Bloom". Everytime we hear of Alcott's masterpieces, it is inevitably always "Little Women". However, I think that we have done this series injustice for in many ways, these two books surpass "Little Women". The story is touching and the interaction between the characters heartwarming. Once you're into the novels, you'll find yourself unable to leave the world of Rose and her cousins willingly. Definitely a must-read!
