Little Women (Hardback)Louisa May Alcott (author)
- In stock
“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy.
The four March sisters couldn't be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another.
Whether they're putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there's one thing they can't help wondering: Will Father return home safely?
Born in Philadelphia in 1832, Louisa May Alcott remains one of the world's best-loved and most enduringly popular American authors. Best-known for Little Women and its sequels, Alcott was a noted feminist, abolitionist and her novels are still celebrated for their championing of independent thought and women's liberation.
