Reviews

beautiful breathtaking and hilarious!

(4.5 stars)

I loved it! Alcott made every transition from gorgeous and delicate to funny and true so smooth! Loved the reader, and the book made me think of Spinning Wheel Stories, also by the same author. Thanks again, Carolyn!

Precious Timeless Tales

(5 stars)

Precious Timeless Tales of love, childhood, War and home life to warm your heart on a cold night. The reader had a nice voice and did a consistent job even if she did misspronounce a few words throughout.

Shoes and Stockings

(5 stars)

A nice collection of Louisa May Alcott stories, they will make you laugh and cry! My favorites are Kitty's Class Day and Aunt Kipp. Also, Carolyn does an awesome job reading A Country Christmas, especially in part 2.

A Charming Wardrobe

(5 stars)

Stories adorned with the quaint, courageous, comely and guiless accessories which Ms.Alcott so deftly uses to exalt the homespun everyday wardrobe of life, transforming them into beautiful raiments.

Nice stories, but not as delightful as I had hoped.
