"Fans of Louisa May Alcott can rejoice" ( USA TODAY) as Gabrielle Donnelly brings Little Women into the future and imagines the lives of Jo March's ancestors. 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, undyingif sometimes infuriatingbond 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.
