is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott. This popular novel concerns the lives and loves of four sisters growing up during the American Civil War, and was based on Alcott's own experiences as a child in Concord, Massachusetts.
Little Women is the most memorable book I have read in several years. A single chapter would bring both laughter and tears. The characters were very real-- living, learning and loving through situations which made them all better human beings. Louisa May Alcott is one of my favorite authors. She weaves solid wisdom and goodness into every tale she tells.
The characters are beautifully portrayed, probably and no other character shall I ever find who will delight me like Jo March. Louisa May Alcott's books deserve to be spread far and wide and this site is a wonderful way to get most of her works. [more]
