"Watch and pray, dear, never get tired of trying, and never think it is impossible to conquer your fault." The classic children's story about four sisters coming of age and discovering romance and adventure during the American Civil War. It's Christmas Eve in the March household, but this will be a Christmas like no other: their father is away fighting in the American Civil War and the March sisters and their mother must try to make ends meet until their father returns. Although life can be hard, and times are tough, Little Women is an extraordinary story of triumph over adversity, recounting in exquisite detail, the lives, loves, trials and triumphs of these four very different sisters. The stories of Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg have charmed readers over 5 generations and joins the ranks of The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Anne of Green Gables as a genuine coming of age classic. One of the best books for children aged 7 and up. Louisa May Alcott is one of America's most beloved writers. Her best known novel is Little Women, the semi autobiographical account of her childhood with her two sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Two sequels followed: Little Men and Jo's Boys. Louisa May's other novels include The Inheritence, Eight Cousins, and Rose in Bloom.

You will get even more out of this book if you don’t over sentimentalise it – yes it is true that is beautiful, that it is heart-wrenching in parts (especially as Beth is dying), it has lovely family and sisterly... More
