Well I read the first chapter and it is such a charming read! I watched the movie a LONG time ago- so it’s vaguely familiar from that. I love their personalities, totally get Beth’s dislike of dishes and dusting! I’m struggling to admire the Father figure though like they do (probably bc of knowing he was a Unitarian?) But how sweet that they want to all bless and love on Marmee for Christmas instead of treating themselves. Also appreciate their convictions when they find themselves complaining and they then confess and repent. How challenging it must have been to uphold the “ladylike standards” of what’s proper, like Jo being scolded for whistling.
