Waterstones Says

Brimming with life and each sharply delineated, Little Women’s titular sisters continue to influence and inspire a century and a half after Louisa May Alcott created them. A compelling family drama set in the shadow of the American Civil War, Little Women is a triumph of characterisation and deft storytelling.

'I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.'

Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth - four "little women" enduring hardships and enjoying adventures in Civil War New England The charming story of the March sisters, Little Women has been adored by generations. Readers have rooted for Laurie in his pursuit of Jo's hand, cried over little Beth's death, and dreamed of travelling through Europe with old Aunt March and Amy. Future writers have found inspiration in Jo's devotion to her writing. In this simple, enthralling tale, both parts of which are included here, Louisa May Alcott has created four of American literature's most beloved women.

“A classic classic”

This book is my favourite classic. As a child it was the only one I could get into and now I’ve read it at least twenty times. It is rather similar to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Susan Coolidge’s What Katy... More
