Book Spotlight: The Inheritance

The Inheritance
by Louisa May Alcott

This was one of the first of Alcott's books I read. My grandma gave it to me when I was around nine years old, and I read it in one sitting. When I finished, I read it again--and I've read it at least five times since. It's a short book, and her first novel, "written at seventeen." Naturally, it's not as high in quality as her later books, and there are certainly plot points and character development problems that could be critiqued. Still, it's a beautiful little story, and I love the "fairytale" quality.

I own this beautiful version:

It is also included in this Kindle compilation of Louisa May Alcott's works for $0.99.
