'Rich or poor, we will keep together and be happy in one another'

Christmas won't be the same this year for Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, as their father is away fighting in the Civil War, and the family has fallen on hard times.

But though they may be poor, life for the four March sisters is rich with colour, as they play games, put on wild theatricals, make new friends, argue, grapple with their vices, learn from their mistakes, nurse each other through sickness and disappointments, and get into all sorts of trouble.

BACKSTORY: Learn all about the author's life and how it inspired her famous story, and find out which of the March sisters you most resemble!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A Beautiful heartwarming read" -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * Prima *
"Timeless." -- Helen Dunmore * Daily Express *
"I try to get every girly girl to read this one because those four sisters are so real. Everybody's favourite is Jo, the tomboy who wants to be a writer" -- Jacqueline Wilson
"Deals with life's big questions - love and death, war and peace, and ambition versus family responsibility - in a way that is inspiring and realistic. Use a hankie as a bookmark - tears are guaranteed" * Marie Claire *
"Louisa May Alcott's Little Women is as much a part of every girl's childhood as her first pair of ballet shoes and the Brothers Grimm" * Mail on Sunday *

“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
