"In a green park,
where troops of bright-eyed deer lay sleeping
under drooping trees and
a clear lake mirrored in its bosom
the flowers that grew upon its edge,
there stood Lord Hamilton's stately home,
half castle and half mansion..."

  1. First review is up. Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy a graphic novel adaptation. It does not do justice to the original. It does show what a great writer Louisa was.
