About the Book:
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.
Ooh la la! A contemporary retelling of Little Women, one of my favorite childhood classics, had me all in!
The March sisters we all know and love are here. Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth. Jo heads off to New York to study journalism, but her career takes a nosedive.
Meg is taking the “safe” route with the life she has always planned and dreamed of- as a wife and mother. She has it all, and she knows it, but somehow she still feels lacking?
Their mother falls ill and all the sisters return home to North Carolina (!!!) to her and to each other. Their bonds as sisters and family will be tested now more than ever.
This story is reminiscent of Little Women largely because of the characters and their personalities, and I loved revisiting them in modern roles. As the title suggests, the story is mainly about Jo and Meg, but we do get some cameos of Amy and Beth also.
Overall, Meg and Jo is a story inspired by one of our favorite classics. It’s about family and sisterhood and pulling together during the tough times. It was a heartwarming read. Jo, as always, was my favorite!
