Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there鈥檚 tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there鈥檚 Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures 鈥?including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.<br />Based on Louisa May Alcott鈥檚 childhood, this lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers.<br /><br />A wonderful story... As a child, I strongly identified with Jo because she is a writer. 鈥擩acqueline Wilson<br />The American female myth. 鈥擬adelon Bedell<br />It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls鈥?Girls come to it on their own. 鈥擩ane Smiley<br />In 鈥淟ittle Women鈥?

When an 800-pound gorilla wants to read a newspaper, where does it sit? Anywhere it wants! That children's joke is the origin of a common phrase, "800-pound gorilla," which means, "someone or something so big and strong that it gets anything it wants." Simple, well-written definitions can be helpful, but to understand how idiomatic phrases are used, you need real-life examples. This friendly e-book has more than 3,900 carefully-chosen examples of more than 1,100 common phrases. <br />Idioms in the News is an updated edition of the popular e-book for students, teachers, and everyone who loves language. The new 2020 edition includes hundreds of citations chosen throughout 2019.<br />The author, Peter Bengelsdorf, is a former newspaper editor and executive who has enjoyed more than a decade of teaching English to adults from around the world.<br />Idioms in the News is available only as an e-book because it is so large. Printed copies would be heavy and expensive, and would lack text-search. You do not need a Kindle device to read this e-book. It works well with free Kindle apps for personal computers and most mobile devices.

It's also where there is violence, intrigue, passion, and hope.<br /><br />Laurel King鈥檚 life changed forever ten years ago when the love of her life abandoned her, leaving her wounded and alone. She picked up the pieces of her broken life and shattered dreams, used them to forge a life built on hard work and ambition. Despite how it appears, Laurel鈥檚 life is not perfect, she never truly recovered from the devastating heartbreak that she suffered at the hands of Jackson Vance. Although a part of her hates him for what he did, she鈥檚 never been able to find a love that could rival what she had with Jackson. <br /><br />And now he鈥檚 back in Echo Village. From the first time that Jackson gets close to her, Laurel realizes that her heart isn鈥檛 closed to him. Just being near him ignites passions that she thought long dead and makes her feel more alive than she has in a decade. <br /><br />Jackson thought that he could never go home again. He spent the past decade traveling the world and facing incredible challenges, trying to never look back at the past. Trying to forget the place, and the love he left behind. He spent ten years running from the one woman, the one place that ever felt like home. <br />Now he faces his biggest challenge yet, winning Laurel鈥檚 love again. He鈥檒l have to break through the walls that Laurel鈥檚 put up to protect her heart, but he鈥檚 determined to do whatever it takes to convince her that they belong together, now and forever. <br /><br />Can Laurel and Jackson bury their past as they reignite the passion that they once shared? Will their fiery passion develop into love or will their second chance at romance burn out before it even begins? <br /><br />In 鈥楨mma鈥檚 Heart鈥? An Echo Village Romance, we met Emma and Mac. Their story continues alongside Laurel and Jackson in 'Laurel's Love'. 'Laurel's Love' is a stand-alone-book but we visit some of our favorite characters from Echo Village and meet new ones.
