#18 on the Big Read List (UK's top 200.)
Largely based on the author's own childhood, Little Women is a timeless tale that is as well-loved now as when it first was published in 1868-69.
This American classic is as fresh and meaningful today as it was when written over 150 years ago in 1868. Largely based on the author's own childhood, Little Women is a timeless tale of the four young March sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy - who grow to maturity in their mother's tender but strong and loving care. As different in personality as they are one in their devotion to each other, the girls vow to support their beloved mother by behaving their best while Father is away serving in the American Civil War.
Literary-minded tomboy Jo develops a fast friendship with the boy next door, and pretty Meg, the eldest, finds true love. Affectionate but frail Beth fills the house with music, and little Amy, the youngest, seeks beauty with all the longing of an artist's soul. Although poor in material wealth, the family possesses an abundance of love, friendship, and imaginative gifts that have captivated readers for 150 years!
