Little Women was the first great story about family life written for children and it is still one of the best. Set in New England during the Civil War, it is the story of four very human daughters of the March family: Jo, Beth, Meg, and Amy.
This nineteenth-century family struggles with the prolonged absence of the father, the death of loved ones, and many other trials. The sisters use Pilgrim’s Progress and the Bible as their guides to life. Jo, the strong young heroine, becomes a writer like Louisa May Alcott and goes on to lead a fruitful life. The story is full of laughter and tears, encouraging us to cherish the idea of home.
