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