One of the world's best-loved stories, this is the inspiring tale of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—whose indomitable good spirits and devotion to each other help steer them through their growing-up years. Although their beloved father's absence, and reminders of more affluent days, sometimes shadow their hearts, the March sisters—together with Marmee, Laurie, and a host of other memorable characters—learn to embrace the real blessings of life: love, security, peace, and health.
Little Women is more than great storytelling. With its insights into the social customs of the mid-1800s, as well as its attention to the mood of America during the Civil War and the late years of the Industrial Revolution, it is also a remarkable snapshot of its time.
