On the 15th of May the club met for the last time that season, assome left town early, and all were full of spring work and summerplans. Every member was in her place at an unusually early hour thatday, and each wore an air of mingled anxiety, expectation, andsatisfaction, pleasant to behold.

Straight on went the girl, never turning head or eyes as she passedthe group on the piazza and vanished round the corner, though it wasevident that she heard the laugh the last speech produced, for thecolor deepened in her cheeks and her step quickened

Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1832. Two years later, she moved with her family to Boston and in 1840 to Concord, which was to remain her family home for the rest of her life. Her father, Bronson Alcott, was a transcendentalist and friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Alcott early realized that her father could not be counted on as sole support of his family, and so she sacrificed much of her own pleasure to earn money by sewing, teaching, and churning out potboilers.

I know I read this waaaay back in the day. Maybe when I was 11 or 12. A library find. I couldn't remember a single story in the whole bunch (garland).
Now as a fifty something, I have to say, the stories are a trifle dull. I'm sure in the 1880s this was a girl power kind of book. However, nowadays it's preachy as well as dull. A good read if you want to get all of LMAs books read.

This book was a sweet and pleasing collection of the author's tales. Louisa May Alcott's writing is just as entertaining, simple, and good today as it was when first published. The virtues and faults of her characters are true and true to life, and the virtues she highlights are just as useful today as they were then. I also enjoy her recurring theme of the simplest, smallest kindness being able to do tremendous good. We often forget the power of the small, and it would do many people good to be reminded of it. Thumbs-up all the way through!

I read this book on Kindle and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the last book published by Alcott before her untimely death, written while she was ill. The stories are very sweet and sentimental and old-fashioned and moralizing and altogether delightful. Consequently, I wanted a hard copy to give to my daughter, for her to read now and someday to share with her daughter (now two years old).

This one looked like a good deal, but it is not. Whoever designed it overlooked the cast-iron publishing convention that odd pages are always recto (right-hand) pages and even pages always verso (left-hand). Almost every page in this book is on the wrong side, beginning with the title page (on the left), up to the point where page 115 is entirely omitted, which at least gets the book back on track--up to the point where page 128 is missing.

Since it is a facsimile, one can't complain too much about the image quality (some pages are just barely legible), but I think it is deceptive to label it "Digitally Remastered," and the omission of (at least) two pages makes it much less useful. I won't be ordering any more "Forgotten Books" editions.

This is Alcott's final book, a collection of eight short stories. There are some fine moments in it that recall the effervescence of her finest work, but there is also the over-sentimentality that can be jarring to modern readers.

Olde fan of Louisa May Alcott!

I love this book - all of the stories of the girls and what they did to make a difference are so inspiring, both to me and to my girls.
Being named for one of the Little Woman, I grew up in a household where Louisa May was practically a relative. A Garland for Girls is one of her better books for girls. It is a quick read and a bit pedantic at points, but the stories are uplifting and enjoyable.
