“Wealth is certainly a most desirable thing, but poverty has its sunny side . . .” It’s Christmas time . . . The March family has fallen on bad times after the father lost their money. The four March sisters—the nearly perfect ‘little woman’ Meg, the tomboyish Jo, the shy but wise Beth, and the artist of the family Amy—are planning to brighten up their Christmas by buying presents while their father is away, fighting the Civil War. Featuring suspense, humour, and engaging characters, Alcott’s Little Women explores their lives as they make their way into adulthood. What becomes of the sisters as they fight the dangers of gender stereotyping while being torn between familial duties and personal growth? Sometimes knotted, sometimes surprising, this coming-of-age novel brings for you a delightfully surprising yarn of family life as the gripping tales of each of the four sisters march along. Little Women It continues to remain Alcott’s best-known and most widely read work.

Born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, Pennsylvania, Louisa May Alcott is best known for Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo’s Boys. At an early age, troubled by poverty that plagued the family, Alcott worked as a teacher, seamstress, governess, domestic helper, and writer, to support her family. Writing became a creative and emotional outlet for her as a result of all the pressures. Flower Fables (1854), a selection of tales originally written for Ellen Emerson, daughter of Ralph Waldo Emerson, was her first book. With the publication of the first part of Little Women: or Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy in 1868 by the Roberts Brothers, Alcott became widely known and successful. It was well received by critics and audiences. Alcott published over 30 books and collections of stories, in all. She died in Boston, at the age of 55 after suffering from a stroke, on March 6, 1888.
