There were so many touching scenes and ideas within the book. One of my favorite quotes from the book was "...for love casts out fear, and gratitude can conquer pride." I think the book definitely lifted my spirit by reading about a simpler time and a family so filled with faith.
The only bad thing I find about reading a good book is coming to the end. I feel like the end of a good book is like the end of a friendship--one where the friends just drift apart. I really enjoyed turning to my book and reading about Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. Now I have to find new "friends" to spend my evenings with. After I finish a book, I will often think about the characters for weeks wishing there were more to read about them. I guess now would be a good time to start another book, although I think this next one may be a nonfiction book.
I'll update more after my next book is complete.
