What’s not to love about the book, Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott? There’s romance, there’s drama and there’s stories about the daily struggles of life throughout the book. So, let’s start at the beginning.
Little Women is about four sisters. The four sisters are named Meg March, Jo March, Amy March and Beth March. Meg March is the sensible and the kind oldest sister. Jo March is the spirited writer. Amy March is the young and the frivolous sister. Beth March is the soft-hearted youngest sister. These four women live and work in the town of Concord, Massachusetts. The four girls face the difficulties of the Civil War in that time. The four sisters must struggle to live with little income because their father is off fighting in the war.
The heart of the book is the love shared between the four sisters. The sisters love, share and learn from one another. They overcome trials and obstacles by supporting each other.
Another important part of the book is the romance between Jo March, Amy March and Theodore Laurence. Laurie (which is the nickname for Theodore Laurence) is in love with the strong and the smart Jo March. However, Jo rejects Laurie’s proposal. Amy, who always loved Laurie, is the woman who wins Laurie in the end.
There are some wonderful things about Little Women. The book is filled with romance, laughter and life lessons. I suggest that you pick up the book and give it a try.
That’s it for now. Until then…
Always with infinite love,
