Everyone seems to think lovely, wealthy Rose Campbell should get married. Everyone, that is, except Rose.

In this sequel to Eight Cousins, Rose returns to the Aunt Hill after two years of traveling around the world. Suddenly, she is surrounded by male admirers. But before she marries anyone, Rose is determined to establish herself as an independent young woman. To begin with, she is learning that riches do not bring happiness in themselves. She is also beginning to suspect that some of her friends like her more for her money than for herself. With the support of her family, Rose sets out to untie the complications of young womanhood.

    " I read this book for a 5th grade book report...and found it totally enchanting although I do not remember any of the story now, just the pleasure I took in reading it. I think that means it's time for a re-read. I'll put that on my list for 2011! "

    " I don't know why, but I've always had a deep affection for this novel of all of them. I think i just liked Rose that much. "

    " I thought it was interesting comparing how this book made me feel when I was in my young teens to how it makes me feel now as a young adult. After you've experienced young puppy love and a more mature love it brings a whole new appreciation for the story. "

    " Alcott is a little more preachy then I remembered. (I still love Little Women though). It was okay. "

    " One of my favorite books of all time - I've read it so much the cover is hanging off. Pure, wholesome and romantic. "

    " I liked this one not at all. I had a hard time getting through it, to be honest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 10/13/2010

    " As always, the characters were lovable and good moral character abounds. This book was more drawn out in parts than it needed to be. Definitely some interesting twists with, or course, a happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gena | 10/12/2010

    " a very sweet book, definitely not in the same league as Little Women, but still a great nostalgic book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 9/1/2010

    " I think I love 8 Cousins and this one more than Little Women! Poor little orphan rose is brought up by a loving uncle, bickering aunts, and rambunctious boy cousins - always made me wish I lived closer to the extended family! "
