Interesting little book of 3 Holiday stories by Louisa May Alcott that were published in a fairly small-run literary journal of some period fans of hers that were unknown to the modern publishing world and discovered and published in 1999. Fairly simple predictable happy-ending Alcott children's pieces that glide along very quickly. Never meant for a huge audience, they are nonetheless fun to experience. ( )

I got this maybe ten years ago and had never read it, but it was quick and enjoyable, a sweet holiday read. All three stories wrapped up too quickly, I felt, as all morality tales tend to do, but as someone who's always been interested in Alcott, it was still interesting to me. I'd definitely check it out if you're interested in her or the period. Or the holiday! ( )

How depressing. Well, I suppose it was the best situation she'd been in yet - but given that her previous situations were unwanted orphan and un-cared-for servant girl, that's not a very high bar to clear. So now she's a slightly-cared-for servant girl...no expectation of ever having her own place, or her own family, she's just an appurtenance to the family. She might even achieve Loyal Family Servant someday - as I said, depressing. And the worst part is how this is celebrated as an achievement, a glorious position for her to have reached...poor girl.

Louisa May Alcott's Lost Christmas Treasure. "If someone would only come and take me away! I'm so tired of living here I don't think I can bear it much longer," Patty cries. Patty's life in an orphanage is a dark world with little hope, beauty, or love. Even after a family finally does come for Patty, it is only because they need a servant. But there is one person who does care about Patty. And soon Patty's life will never be the same!Honor Books is pleased to present Louisa May Alcott's newly discovered literary treasure as a book publishing first!In the 1870s, Louisa May Alcott made friends with five earnest fans of her best-selling Little Women. The young Lukens girls had written to Miss Alcott telling her that they were so inspired by the examples of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, that they, too, were launching their own literary publication.Soon the Lukens girls received a very special gift-a Christmas story from Miss Alcott about a lonely orphan girl who finds a family to love her. Following its publication, the story stayed in an old magazine until many years later, a reader chanced upon it. Now its available to Alcott fans once again, released by Honor Books for the very first time as a stand-alone volume.You will cherish this enchanting tale filled with quiet moral lessons in which orphan Patty finds her heart's desire . . . and you will find heartwarming inspiration for filling your own life with more love.

3.0 star for the book. Plus 0.5 star for the charm of the physical book and its illustrations.

This is a book of 3 short stories that Ms. Alcott wrote in the 1870s for the 5 Lukens sisters who were her ardent fans. The admiration went both ways as these sisters, inspired by the “Little Women” Sisters, also launched their own publication which grew to a circulation with a 1,000 subscribers!

The 3 stories themselves were adequately delightful given its brevity. “The Quiet Little Woman” is an orphan waiting for adoption and what happens during her first Christmas afterwards – being an earnest worker and the rewards will reveal itself. “Tilly’s Christmas” is a lovely story about a little girl’s love and tenderness returned to her in kind. “Rosa’s Tale” shares a horse’s life story – somewhat contrived but I’m sure children will enjoy it.

The book further had an introduction, editor’s notes, and a description of the author. All were well worth reading.

One quote – not from any of the stories, but a poem from the publication of the Lukens sisters!

“A spider is a little thing,
But once a spider saved a king,
The little bees are wiser far
Then buffaloes or lions are…
A little pen may write a word
By which a nation shall be stirred.
A little money, wisely spent,
A world of sorrow may prevent,
A little counsel, rightly given,
May lift a sinful soul to Heaven…
A little fault, if left to grow,
An emperor may overthrow,
A little word but spoke in jest,
May rob your neighbor of his rest,
A little selfishness and pride
The kindest household may divide.
Little vices may times
Out-Herod felonies and crimes,
And little virtues in the sum
Great excellencies do become.” ( )
