"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott is a classic novel loved by adults and children alike. Come laugh and cry with the March family. Meg - the sweet-tempered one. Jo - the smart one. Beth - the shy one. Amy - the sassy one. Together they're the March sisters. Their father is away at war and times are difficult, but the bond between the sisters is strong. The family may not have much money, but that doesn't stop them from creating their own fun and forming a secret society. Through sisterly squabbles, happy times and sad, their four lives follow very different paths, and they discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do...Plus a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more...Louisa May Alcott wrote her first novel, "The Inheritance", at age seventeen, but it went unpublished for nearly 150 years until 1997, after two researchers (Joel Myerson and Daniel Shealy) stumbled across the handwritten manuscript in the Houghton Library at Harvard University. Of course, Ms. Alcott is best known for a different novel, "Little Women", which she wrote in two parts.
The first volume, alternately titled "Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy", was published in 1868, and the second volume, "Good Wives", was published in 1869. Like Jo in "Little Women", Louisa also wrote many "Blood and Thunder" tales, which were published in popular periodicals of the day. She did not openly claim authorship for many of these Gothic thriller stories, however: for some, she used the pseudonym, "A. M. Barnard"; for others, she chose to remain completely anonymous.
