Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Meet the Marches! Louisa May Alcott’s classic introduces us to four unforgettable sisters: beautiful Meg, tomboyish Jo, delicate Beth, and Amy, the indulged youngest of the lot. With their father serving as a Union chaplain, the Marches help their devoted mother, Marmee, make ends meet as their fortunes dwindle. The book starts with the family performing a small act of kindness for a family even less fortunate than they are and expands from there, drawing us in as the March girls grow up-and experience joy, hardship, failure, heartbreak, success, and love.

Alcott’s novel draws from her own life story. She herself was one of four sisters who all struck out on different paths. Open the pages of >Little Women and fall into a world of innocence and generosity-one that you’ll want to return to again and again.

Little Women

In the year 1951 as a young lad of ten years, I recall my 21 year old sister saying she was reading Little Women. Whether in 1951 or 2013, young boys are not generally interested in reading novels, they have other pursuits and interests; mine were not unique.

I am now 71 years of age and wish I had read this wonderful story at an earlier age as did my beloved sister. She incorporated the simple, wise approach to life and marriage as put forth by the author; had a few days short of fifty years marital bliss, and a son as princely as his father.

I suspect Little Women touches the unknown, indescribable humanity in all of us. The author accurately describes the feelings I have for my wife much better than I could hope.
