    Little Women

    by Louisa May Alcott

    Book Description

    This classic story of the March family women and their lives in New England during the Civil War has remained enduringly popular since its publication in 1868. Poor, argumentative, loving, and optimistic, the March sisters struggle to supplement their family's meager income and realize their own dreams. This highly autobiographical novel shows us women who are strong-minded and independent in their determination to control their own destiny. The introduction to this edition provides a fascinating history of the Alcotts, and a biographical history of Louisa Alcott's own struggles as a writer.

    Sweet Little Women
    This is one of my favorite books. It takes you back to a simpler time. My favorite characters were Jo and Beth. Jo because she was a bookworm like me and Beth because she was so sweet and cheerful. She never complained out-loud but kept a cheerful face when others were around.
