The lives of four teenage sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – unfold in this treasured classic. Living in Massachusetts the March sisters are struggling though poverty and the effects of the American Civil War, which has taken away their father. Through happy and sad times, the sisters pull together with help from their mother, Marmee. Despite squabbles and desperate times, the sisters have a contagious sense of fun that leads to many adventures and eventually they learn exactly what it takes to grow up. Little Women was released in 1868 to commercial success and favourable reviews from critics. It has since become a true literary classic, made into countless adaptations, and a worldwide success that is loved by many.

About The Author

Louisa May Alcott (1832–88) was an American novelist, poet and short story writer. She drew inspiration for her writing from her family life. She grew up with three sisters, Abigail, Elizabeth and Anna, and their relationships are often said to have inspired her best known work, Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo’s Boys (1886). She was one of the most successful writers of the nineteenth century and is today considered one of the all-time literary greats.
