Synopsis: Four sisters face new beginnings in this heartfelt modern take on Little Women by New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra.
Amy March is more like her older sister Jo than she'd like to admit. An up-and-coming designer in New York's competitive fashion industry, ambitious Amy is determined to get out of her sisters' shadow and keep her distance from their North Carolina hometown. But when Jo's wedding forces her home, she must face what she really wants...and confront the One Big Mistake that could upend her life and forever change her relationship with Jo.
Gentle, unassuming Beth grew up as the good girl of the family. A talented singer-songwriter, she's overcome her painful anxiety to tour with country superstar Colt Henderson. But life on the road has taken its toll on her health and their relationship. Maybe a break to attend her sister's wedding will get her out of her funk. But Beth realizes that what she's looking for and what she needs are two very different things....
With the March women reunited, this time with growing careers and families, they must once again learn to lean on one another as they juggle the changes coming their way. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Revisiting and Re-imagining Little Women featuring Beth and Amy. I'm going to confess to you guys that I have never read Little Women. I know, I know. I'm not really good at reading classic books. I'm sure I'll read it one day. So, even though I have not read the source material, I really enjoyed this modern look into the lives of Beth and Amy. I liked the story of sisters and sisterhood.
This was a fun, heartfelt story. I liked how it focused on growing up and how life doesn't always turn out like you think it will.
I think fans of Little Women will definitely like this story. I'm always a big fan of re-imaginings and taking a classic tale and telling a new story with it. I liked reading this. It did everything I wanted it to do. It was a good time and I'm glad I got to read it.
