Do you have a favorite classic? I have a couple, but my top

Do you have a favorite classic? I have a couple, but my top two are “Anne of Green Gables” and “Little Women”. There is so much in those two books that speaks directly to my heart and the kind of person I want to be. However, I admittedly haven’t read much about the authors. To be honest, I didn’t think much about any author until I joined Instagram. I know it seems crazy to be an avid reader and not have appreciated the person who wrote the books I was reading, but that’s my honest truth. And that’s the main reason I joined the blog tour for “A Hopeful Heart: Louisa May Alcott before Little Women”. I wanted to get my hands on this book and learn more about an author who wrote one of the books that influences my daily life. This book is a biography for middle grade readers that tells the story of Louisa May Alcott (it hit shelves yesterday). I wish that I’d read about her when I was younger because there is so much in her that is relatable. I have loved reading this book. It’s so engaging and well written and perfect for any age reader who wants to learn about the life of Alcott! Synopsis: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. How did these cherished characters come to be? Louisa May Alcott, the author of one of the most famous "girl" books of all time, was anything but a well-mannered young lady. A tomboy as well as a ravenous reader, Louisa took comfort in fictional characters that were as passionate and willful as she was--and whose wild imaginations were a match for her own. She was often found roaming the woods near her home in Concord, Massachusetts, or exploring the natural world in the company of the great Transcendentalist thinkers Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Here is a beautiful portrait of Louisa May Alcott, a woman influenced by her father, a penniless philosopher, her mother, with whom she shared a great connection, and, of course, her three sisters. Featuring unique indigo illustrations, Deborah Noyes unveils how Louisa's natural spirit, loving family, and unconventional circumstances inspired the timeless masterpiece that is Little Women. #littlewomen #louisamayalcott #ahopefulheart
