This unabridged top quality edition of the beloved classic, Little Women, is a portrait of nineteenth-century family life that has been read by young and old for generations. It is the story of four sisters--Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March, and details their passage from childhood to womanhood as they defy society's expectations. Children around the world have come of age with these sisters who couldn't be more different--hardworking Meg, impulsive Jo, virtuous Beth and precocious Amy. While their father was away at war, their loving mother supported the family as they endured the hardships of wartime shortages and poverty. We watch as these sisters support each other as they hope for their father's safe return from the war and along the way have unforgettable adventures that as readers, we're privileged to share.
