Little Women Summary

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Now a major motion picture starring Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson and Meryl Streep.

Recognized as one of the best-loved classic children's stories of all time, Little Women is an utterly beguiling novel.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition includes the sequel, Good Wives, which picks up the girls' stories three years on, and features an afterword by publisher Anna South.

Louisa May Alcott tells the story of the courageous and ingenious March sisters; Jo, the independent tomboy; Beth, who is delicate and loving; pretty and kind Meg; and beautiful, precocious Amy, the baby of the family. Their devoted mother Marmee, recently impoverished, must care for them alone whilst their father is away serving as a chaplain in the Civil War.

Little Women Reviews

Alcott's book has become the cast-iron foundation from which other writers and artists can build their own beliefs and desires. * Independent *
One-hundred-and-fifty-year-old literature never felt so alive . . . There's a reason why Little Women, in print continuously since its first volume was published in 1868, has been such an enduring phenomenon, and that is Jo March. * Guardian *
During the 150 years since the novel's publication, fans have worshipped Alcott's story . . . a treasured American classic and peerless coming-of-age story for girls. * The Atlantic *

About Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott was born in Pennsylvania in 1832, the second of four daughters to the philosopher Amos Bronson Alcott, and she died in 1888 at the age of fifty-six. She was educated at home and went on to become a schoolteacher in Boston. Her first book, Flower Fables, was published when she was twenty-two, but she interrupted her career as a writer to nurse soldiers at a Washington hospital during the Civil War. Her most enduring book, Little Women, was published in 1868, and was an instant success. Her other books include Little Men and Jo's Boys.
