EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED EDITION
Read one of the greatest novels of all time in a beautifully presented edition.
Little Women is a novel by Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888), American novelist and poet, published in 1868.
The novel recounts the lively and warm story of the four March sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy - during and after the Civil War. They share their secrets and dreams, and help each other be strong when beloved Mother must leave to nurse 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. It is largely based on the author's childhood experiences.
This book shows vividly the joys of growing up in a loving family.
This masterpiece was an immediate commercial and critical success. It has been read as a romance, a quest, and a family drama that validates virtue over wealth, but also as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well.
This magnificient novel is a must-read of classic literature and will delight readers of all ages.
