In the continuing story of the March sisters, the "little women" grow up and marry, providing much occasion for advice on how to be a "womanly woman," and focus on the pleasures of being poor. King renders a fully characterized reading of this period piece. She gracefully adjusts her voice to the many personalities and easily differentiates characters. Her dramatics accentuate the spirit of the text and invoke the days when reading aloud was a primary form of entertainment. E.L.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
Amy looked relieved, but naughty Jo took her at her word, for during the first call she sat with every limb gracefully composed, every fold correctly draped, calm as a summer sea, cool as a snowbank, and as silent as the sphinx. In vain Mrs. Chester alluded to her `charming novel', and the Misses Chester introduced parties, picnics, the opera, and the fashions. Each and all were answered by a smile, a bow, and a demure "Yes" or "No" with the chill on.
