GOOD WIVES is the second half of Alcott's beloved classic, LITTLE WOMEN. Liza Ross does a lovely job of narrating this abridged version about the March sisters, beginning with Meg's marriage and ending with Jo's. The story is told through narrative and letters, mainly from Amy and Jo's perspectives as they have adventures in Europe and New York, respectively. Ross gives each character a fitting voice and expressively conveys his or her emotions. She's especially delightful as Mr. Bhaer, a German man who becomes Jo's love interest. This is a lovely production, with piano music setting the tone between scenes. Listeners will need to be familiar with LITTLE WOMEN to enjoy this continuation of the story.
