A true hero, very enlightening story
7 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a young girl, I was a big fan of the children' books by Louisa May Alcott. I knew that the Little Women series of books were based on her real life but I found from watching this DVD that her real life story is much more interesting and exciting than she was portrayed in her books. She was a true hero and I found this DVD very enlightening and entertaining. It is a must-see for those who are fans of Luisa May Alcott. The special features were also interesting. They included an extended interview with Author Geraldine Brooks, Alcott Scholar Daniel Shealy and others. There is also a Q&A with Nancy Porter, Harriet Reisen and Elizabeth Marvel. My favorite special feature was LOVE, a poem by Louisa May Alcott, read by Elizabeth Marvel. I felt that this DVD really showed that Louisa May Alcott was much more than a story book character, she was a true inspiration to women. Reviewed by Denise B., KIDS FIRST! Reviewer
