In the book, cousins Ann, Roger, and Eliza have discovered a magic garden that allows them to travel around in time and space, meeting both real and literary figures. In this snippet, they're in Civil War-era Concord, Massachusetts, meeting up with the characters from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. And I should probably add that if you've never read Alcott's classic, or don't know much about it, this might be a bit of a spoiler.
...in the book Beth dies, and there isn't much you can do about people who die in books except hope their days were happy though numbered, and that it was worth it. As for Amy, neither Ann and Roger and Eliza nor anyone else has ever yet forgiven her for marrying Laurie in the end, when anyone could tell he was meant for Jo! (p.87, paperback edition)Well, I'm not so sure about that. If Jo had married Laurie, there never would have been a Little Men, and as a child I loved that sequel even more than Little Women.
