Literary Love #4: Laurie – Little Women

4 May




(Little Women)

He ended up with the wrong March sister

He ended up with the wrong March sister

He ended up with the wrong March sister


From the book:

I think I have cried more over Laurie than any fictional character. Every time I reread the book I would wander around the house in a haze, tears streaming down my face. It was all wrong. Jo and the professor were all wrong. He and Amy were all wrong. Full body sobs, uncontrollable emotion.

“Laurie was a young lover, but he was in earnest, and meant to ‘have it out’, if he died in the attempt so he plunged into the subject with characteristic impetuosity, saying in a voice that would get choky now and then, in spite of manful efforts to keep it steady…’I’ve loved you ever since I’ve known you, Jo, couldn’t help it, you’ve been so good to me. I’ve tried to show it, but you wouldn’t let me. Now I’m going to make you hear, and give me an answer, for I can’t go on any longer.”

The movie does it well when they add this:



I mean, come on! I’m posting a collage here! That’s how strongly I still feel!





Excuse me while I go sob.


Love #1, #2 and #3

    Yes!!! I almost can’t do Little Women just because of this. It kills me every. single. time. They were so right for each other.

    I LOVE this series! And I agree wholeheartedly with this one. Laurie and Jo were meant to be.

    I read that Louisa May Alcott made sure Jo and Laurie did not end up together out to spite her fans who were bugging her about them.
