About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Little Women Devotional: A Chapter-by-Chapter Companion to Louisa May Alcott’s Beloved Classic by Rachel Dodge

The Little Women Devotional: A Chapter-by-Chapter Companion to Louisa May Alcott’s Beloved Classic

Devotional Inspiration from the Lives of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy
The Little Women Devotional offers lovely inspiration that explores the themes of faith, family, contentment, wisdom, and joy in the classic Louisa May Alcott novel, cherished by generations of readers.

Each reading corresponds with a chapter from the book and invites you to embrace God’s guiding hand in your life as His cherished daughter. This beautiful chapter-by-chapter devotional includes original artwork throughout, and each reading includes examples from the novel, scripture, life application, and prayers perfect for groups, book clubs, or personal reflection.


How many of you consider Little Women as one of the most beloved books of all time? I certainly do and now, there is a wonderful companion to Louisa May Alcott's masterpiece. Author Rachel Dodge offers readers The Little Women Devotional, and it is absolutely beautiful! There are 47 devotions and I was immediately transported back to the first time that I read Little Women. Each devotion has a snippet from the book, and these scenes are followed by an inspiring devotion, a suggestion for applying it to our own life, and an appropriate prayer. Best of all, each devotion has a colorful illustration that is reminiscent of the original Little Women.

As I read these devotionals, I was reminded of the wisdom and inspiration that was included in Little Women, but I now have a greater appreciation for Marmee, Mr. March, and the four March sisters. It's very apparent that Dodge treasured them also, and she's penned a memorable tribute! The Little Women Devotional is absolutely lovely, and it's now been added to my shelf of favorite devotionals. It reminds me of my youth, it encourages me to return to the values of a simpler and gentler time, and it inspires a closer walk with God. Reading it is an emotional trip down memory lane, and I look forward to sharing this book with my family and friends!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Barbour Publishing, but I also purchased another copy. I was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
