Just finished up Return to Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank. Bad, unbelievably bad and I've always enjoyed her books. Back to Russian Winter now.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

It's moralistic, but it's still one of my favorites, anyway. :)

One of my favourites since I was a kid.

Have you ever read Little Men or Jo's Boys? I read them once as a kid but have never re-read them, although I have them on my bookshelf. They continue the story of the March family, but neither is as good as Little Women. I need to re-read them one of these days.......

Not yet. I do have a copy of Little Men.

Will do Miss Moppet! I'm trying to work my way through all of Anya Seton's works and this is the third one I'll have read, about 26 pages in and finding it good, looking forward to coming across Dragonwyck and Mr van Ryn himself however :)

I've read them. They're among my childhood favorites, though not up there with Little Women in quality.
