This is the story of Rose, a rich but lonely and sickly girl who has been recently orphaned and sent to live with her maiden aunts. When Rose’s guardian, Uncle Alec, returns from abroad he takes over her care. Through his unorthodox theories about child-rearing and her exposure to the exploits of her seven male cousins and numerous aunts, Rose becomes happier and healthier, cured of many of her fears and prejudices. She also makes friends with Phebe, her aunts’ maid of her own age, whose cheerful attitude in the face of poverty helps to illustrate to Rose her own good fortune.
An excellent story
This is a wonderful book. It is sure to make you laugh at the antics of the seven boys a the trouble they are able to get themselves in. It is a good book to read for both sexes.
Great book for a wide range of readers. A real feel-good book. It makes a great read aloud, too.
Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott
Growing up I loved two of her books Little Women & Little Men. Little Men inspired me to be a hopefully kind teacher. I would not have known about Eight Cousins if it weren't for Good Reads. This book is about love and freedom to choose. It is a good book and a quick read.
