“Every few weeks she would shut herself up in her room, put on her scribbling suit, and fall into a vortex, as she expressed it, writing away at her novel with all her heart and soul, for till that was finished she could find no peace.” 

Little Women
by Louisa May Alcott

I love reading this Novel at Christmas time. It is warm and filled with meaning and joy. It also helps one to count and appreciate their blessings. The novel follows the lives of four sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March—detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters.
