When I’m having a tough time, I want to read books that are comforting to me, and Little Women is the definition of that. Besides my emotional connection to the book, I also see a message of strength throughout that is inspiring. As the characters confront challenges in their lives–war, financial difficulties, sickness, career uncertainty, love, and death–they do so with patience and courage, and with the ultimate goal of being good people. To me, this book speaks to the importance of finding joy in your everyday life and being kind to others, and a reminder of these values helps me to pass through any tough time.
