It was a nice light read. Granted the book was very short and the book only took me less than 12 hours of reading time to complete, but it was still a nice diversion from the heavier books that are awaiting me. I find it interesting that these three stories were only discovered quite recently and that Ms. Alcott took the time to pen these stories for the Lukens girls and their little publication, which was inspired by the paper that the March girls made in Little Women, even though she was a well-known author at the time of these stories and was in the midst of her own busy writing career. The stories are quite simple and while the first two stories in the collection were more entertaining, the last story was a little confusing for the most part. Overall it was enjoyable and a nice read.
