This is the story of Rose Campbell, a rich but lonely and sickly girl who has been recently orphaned and sent to live with her maiden aunts. When Rose’s guardian, Uncle Alec, returns from abroad he takes over her care. Through his unorthodox theories about child-rearing and her exposure to the exploits of her seven male cousins and numerous aunts, Rose becomes happier and healthier. At the end of a year, she is given a choice of which relative she is to stay with. Whom will she choose? This is an unabridged recording of Louisa May Alcott’s classic work, originally published in 1874.

I actually liked the reader who, while having a bit of a slur, also contributed through her voice to the sweet and childish innocence in the story. Well done. :) I loved the story as I loved all of Alcott's other works. :)

A great story, like all of Alcott's stuff. Wasn't a fabulous reader.
