      In the spring, the girls take to gardening. They soon became good friends. I always thought it a foolish thing, you know,' said Nan, with a trace of anxiety in the keen eyes that searched for signs of illness in a face as ruddy as a Baldwin apple. Nat begins a musical career in Europe that takes him away from his forbidden love, Daisy Brookeonly to fall in with a frivolous crowd and unintentionally lead a young woman on, whom he then does not marry. Alcott's characters are always so complex and sweet it's always a pleasure to see them again. Jack was in business with his father, bent on getting rich.

      Jo tells Beth that she should go thank him, thinking that her shy sister would never be so bold. Emil was the jolliest tar that ever 'sailed the ocean blue'. Then, Nat comes to Plumfield, followed by his friend Dan. They haf no right to put poison in the sugarplum, and let the small ones eat it. Dan tells her of this fancy and that Bess seemed like the bright northern star which guided him.

      I shall have an office, with bottles and pestle things in it, and drive round and cure folks. Jo's Boys perfectly combined the sentimental elements of both Little Women and Little Men to create a fantastic conclusion to the series. But Nan was firm, and Tom stoutly kept on, devoutly hoping he might not kill many of his fellow-beings when he came to practise. You are so desperately busy all the time I never get a word,' explained Tom. Amy even tells Laurie she wishes he were poor, so she could demonstrate her love by choosing him anyway.

Escaping from Tom, Ted struck a sentimental attitude, and with tender glances at the wet, torn young person before him, delivered Claude Melnotte's famous speech in a lackadaisical way that was irresistibly funny, ending with 'Dost like the picture, love?

It certainly did look as if magic had been at work, for quiet Plumfield was transformed into a busy little world. In Europe, Laurie let go of both his boyhood dreams — marrying Jo and being a famous musician, and he returns as a man.

She dreams of doing something splendid and traveling abroad, and she is tempted to run away with Laurie when he proposes it. Amy tells her enemy, a girl named Miss Snow, that she will not get any limes.

Professor Bhaer's nephew Emil is now a sailor, and takes off on his first voyage as second mate and shows his true strength when he is shipwrecked and the captain badly injured. Dan tells her of this fancy and that Bess seemed like the bright northern star which guided him.

The parents of Massachusetts were alarmed to find Bronson prioritising theological discussion, rather than dogma, with his pupils, and his views were generally considered subversive.

His uncle sent him on a long voyage to disgust him with this adventurous life; but he came home so delighted with it that it was plain this was his profession, and the German kinsman gave him a good chance in his ships; so the lad was happy. By discussing Laurie's situation obliquely, she gives us insight into his thought process that is informative for understanding the book.

The sisters produce a newsletter each week, with advertisements, poems, and stories. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect or peace.

And how you steeped me in wormwood till I was a fine mahogany color, and Aunt Jo wailed over my spoilt jacket,' laughed Tom, a boy again in a minute. I'm so glad I finally took the time to continue with the Marches and now I am really sad to see them go but it was a fantastic and sentimental journey with them.
