Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hines, who has sold nearly half a million copies of Alcott's rediscovered stories "The Quiet Little Woman" and "Kate's Choice," here gathers those tales along with 18 others to comprise a "Christmas treasury"-all of Alcott's known Christmas sketches in one volume. Some will be dearly familiar to readers; an excerpt from Little Women, for example, reminds us of the yuletide benevolence of Marmee and her four girls. Other touching stories are less well known, such as "What Love Can Do," about residents of a boarding house joining together to make a lovely Christmas for two poor girls. (Poverty and Christmas charity are the themes that tie most of these stories together.) Hines can be a heavy-handed compiler, whose editorial notes tell the reader how to respond to the stories. ("Perhaps we today need to learn a lesson from Miss Alcott and from Patty," he intones at the close of "The Quiet Little Woman.")

About the Author


More About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was both an abolitionist and a feminist. She is best known for Little Women (1868), a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Alcott, unlike Jo, never married: "... because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man." She was an advocate of women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts.

I love the author and was so happy to get such a excellent copy of the book for my home library. I have read to this book through several times and enjoy laughing at the tales and moral lessons given in such a caring way.

A lovely, feel-good book that should be read around the fire on Christmas Eve, with children tucked in around you, and hot chocolate aplenty.

Fabulous compilation of Christmas Stories. I was hoping The Christmas Elves would be included in this book, but it is not. You don't know that because the names of the chapters is not available to view prior to purchase. That's the ONE story I wish I could find and was really hoping it was in this book. Bummer but, the other stories are wonderful and i do enjoy her writing.

Many wonderful tales I never knew existed until I found this recently. Helps me keep foremost in my mind what Christmas' real meaning is, and helps me find characters who illustrate the role models I love to learn from,
