While their father is away at war, the four March sisters try their best to maintain life in their New England home. Fifteen-year-old Jo, modeled after author Louisa May Alcott, is a bit of a tomboy, tends to get in trouble, and loves writing. The oldest, Meg, works as a governess and puts herself in charge in the absence of their parents. The kind and charitable Beth loves music and being a caretaker. The youngest, Amy, is slightly spoiled and frustrated by being treated as the youngest.
Alcott gives us a realistic account of the girl’s lives – the ups and downs, tragedies and triumphs, successes and failures. It’s long remained one of the most relatable and appealing works of American literature.

    I always enjoy this amazing classic artfully written by Louisa May Alcott. At the end I am content with the girls' lives, though I think it cruel that Louisa must leave dear Beth out of the fun at the end. I always shed a tear or two when poor, angelic little Beth departs. Though in the end, all is well and everyone has their own little castle and are happy with their fortunes, whether they be money, love or little children, or all three.
