    Three girls travel from the US to Europe I think this was written somewhere around 1923, and you are reminded how much people had to take with them, as well as how long it took just across the Atlantic Don t forget seasicknessSomewhere I read that Louisa May Alcott was a feminist for her time it shows in this book, although it is definitely rela...
