Giveaway: The Little Women Letters

Last year I was on vacation at the Outer Banks and I read a really enjoyable novel, The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly.  It was the perfect read for vacation; plus, I am a huge fan of Little Women.  

The Little Women Letters has just come out in paperback, which is perfect for summer, and thanks to Simon and Schuster/Touchstone, I am hosting a giveaway of two copies to US/Canada readers.

If you are interested in my review of The Little Women Letters, you can check it out here or read the synopsis below:

"Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women remains as beloved today as when it was first published in 1868.  Gabrielle Donnelly’s THE LITTLE WOMEN LETTERS (On-sale June 5, 2012; Touchstone; $15.00/paperback) brings the story 150 years into the future through the imagined lives of Jo March’s descendants—three sisters living in London who are thoroughly modern and at the same time thoroughly March.  Sisters Emma, Lulu, and Sophie Atwater couldn’t be more different. They adore each other and drive each other mad in equal measure. Middle sister Lulu feels that she is the failure of the family. One day, she goes to the attic in search of a book and stumbles across a collection of letters written by her great-great grandmother Jo March. Finally, Lula feels there is someone who would understand her. It seems that Jo didn’t always adore her own sisters Meg, Beth, and Amy, and like Lulu, Jo found herself alone at a crossroads in life. As Lulu discovers hidden secrets about her ancestors, she also finds solace and guidance in Jo’s words, discovering that they share so many similarities, even though they are worlds apart. And that the fierce, undying—if sometimes infuriating—bond of sisterhood links the Atwater women today every bit as firmly as it did the March sisters all those years ago. The Little Women Letters is a warm, engaging tip of the hat to the multitudes of Little Women fans who wonder what Jo’s descendents would be like today."

  1. I hadn't seen anything about this book yet. Sometimes a spin on the classics works for me, but sometimes not so much. Still, I'd love to give it a try! Thanks for the contest!
