Customer Review

Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on September 28, 2021
I basically bought this book because I loved Little Women as a girl, and I wanted to support a Black writer, so I didn't have any expectations.

This book isn't a re-telling of Little Women from a Black perspective, and to think of it that way does it a real disservice.

It's a lovely story that stands on its own, and doesn't reference LW except for the first names of the characters.

Gives real insight into a period I wasn't familiar with and areas that I had very little knowledge about (as concerns Black people). The novel was well written, enjoyable and gave me some historical insight.

Highly recommend!
