Part of the Legend Classics series
I'll try and be what he loves to call me, "a little woman", and not be rough and wild; but do my duty here instead of wanting to be somewhere else.
Little Women is the lively and warm story of the March sisters. They share their secrets and dreams, and help each other be strong when their beloved Mother must leave home to nurse their Father, who is wounded in the Civil War. The passing years bring more adventures and romance, the first wedding, a broken heart, a trip to Europe, and the girls are young women.
Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy, explore the boundaries of their culture under the guidance and watchful eye of Marmee, as they come to realise that life is not what they once thought. This book is a heart-warming portrait of the joys of growing up in a loving family.
Readers young and old will fall in love with this beloved classic, at once a lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life and a feminist novel about young women defying society's expectations.
