Eight Cousins, by Louisa May Alcott

Different

This is the wonderful story of Rose Campbell, whom we first meet as a sickly and despondent 13-year-old orphan. She is grieving for her recently dead parents, and she tends to get the vapors and other Victorian women’s ailments. Nevertheless, this shy, frail and delicate creature is sent to live on the “Aunt Hill” to be raised by six very opinionated aunts.
