Description

The timeless classic Little Women inspired this heartwarming modern tale of four sisters from New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra. The March sisters--reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy Beth--have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger. Meg appears to have the life she always planned--the handsome husband, the adorable toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting everything you've ever wanted isn't all it's cracked up to be. When their mother's illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they'll rediscover what really matters. One thing's for sure--they'll need the strength of family and the power of sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams.

Review quote

Praise for Meg and Jo This family drama offers sharp insights into the tough choices women make.--People Magazine "I don't know of another author who could do justice to Little Women. In a warm, realistic, and humorous voice, Virginia Kantra knocks it out of the park with Meg & Jo in this rich retelling of the beloved classic."--New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins "Kantra blends just enough of Alcott's story of four close-knit sisters and their myriad tribulations with clever and timely new elements...The imaginative storytelling and sparkling prose make this a winner."--Publishers Weekly "Those who gravitate toward family-centric novels with twists along the way will enjoy this novel, and fans of Alcott's original will appreciate this modern take on the beloved classic."--Booklist "A thought-provoking adaptation of a beloved classic."--Kirkus Reviews A fun and lighthearted read.--Mindbodygreen Meg & Jo is a must-read for anyone who grew up with Little Women and is a complex exploration of the power of time, place and identity.--Deep South Magazine A great novel to pair with hot cider and to whet your appetite for the "Little Women" film that releases on Christmas Day.--Augusta Chronicle A beautiful continuation of the original classic.--Seattle Book Review
