Moods 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

On my list of books to read by favorite authors, Moods was touted to be unlike her stories for young women. I would say yes, and no. I found her writing style and gentle moralizing to be the same. The subject matter was definitely more geared to adult readers, but the story had the same feel. (I feel I can speak with some authority here, having been reading Louisa for at least 30 years now.) I just watched a PBS special on LMA, and some historians speculate she may have been subject to manic depression. This was interesting in that the heroine of Moods was also subject to rather violent mood swings. Very typically of LMA, the heroes and heroine of the story must come to terms with the darker side of themselves, and make sacrifice for the good of those they love.

I had never read this before but thought this book was lovely. A piece of me cant stand that sylvia did not go to adam, but it made for an interesting story. Still, they both died because their love was unrealized. Curses to faith for making sure they did not end up together! Did people really think, act and speak like this back when this was written? They talk so much but never get around to coming out and saying what they really mean.
