    "I recently went through divorce and wanted people to get away from all the stress that was going on in my life.  Little woman has always been a classic and I find myself turning back to this time and time again when I want to reread it. I love the story line and the characters are just lovable. I will say that if you are stressed out Little Women is definitely a choice to turn to to relieve some stress!"
