Little Women

  • by Louisa May Alcott

Summary

  • As a New England mother struggles to support her family in the wake of her husband's service in the Civil War, her four daughters struggle, too--caught between childhood dreams and the realities of burgeoning adulthood. For Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March, raised in integrity and virtue, negotiating the right path in life means making choices that will either narrow or expand their destinies.

    Based on the author's life, Little Women transcends genre, gender, and class with its examination of personal quests, societal restrictions, family ties, and the end of innocence.
