It is heartening and refreshing to read the first pages of this Little Women remake, set on Roanoke Island after the end of the Civil War. The African-American March family has weathered the horrors of their enslavement and the war and I hope their new lives and home remain as stable as possible. I am glad that it isn't all pie-in-the-sky; Mammy's treatment at her office job shows the prejudice of many of the White Union soldiers. And I am happy that we are given Jo's honest vitriolic against her former oppressors.
