Description of this Electronic Book

The iconic novel of American girlhood The March sisters are four of the most beloved characters in literature. Beautiful and proper Meg, headstrong Jo, gentle Beth, pampered little Amy-generations of young women have recognized themselves in one or more of the devoted siblings. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War and the changing seasons of New England, the story of their passage from adolescence to adulthood, from a Christmas without presents to a glorious fall day in a bountiful apple orchard, from castles in the air to real-life hearths and homes, is just as touching and illuminating today as it was a century and a half ago. Based on Louisa May Alcott's own childhood and early career as a writer, Little Women is her masterpiece and one of the most popular novels of all time. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review "Little Women changed my life." -Anna Quindlen "I, personally, am Jo March, and if her author Louisa May Alcott had a whole new life to live for the sole pursuit of talking me out of it, she could not." -Barbara Kingsolver

Barnard before finding lasting success as a children's author with Little Women and its three sequels.
