"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott
Little Women is a novel, written by American author Louisa May Alcott (1832- 1888). Based on her own and her three siblings' story, the novel presents the life from the childhood and womanhood of four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. The novel originally had two volumes, the first one published in 1868 and the second one in 1869. In 1880, it was issued as a single work and entitled Little Women. It is considered to be a romantic masterpiece addressing three master themes: family life, work, and love.
The plot starts at Christmas time when the family is getting ready for the Holidays Season without their father. After losing their money, they live in poverty in a new neighborhood. Two of the girls, Meg and Jo, work to support their family. Amy is in school, and Beth stays at home, helping with the house chores. Each of them has strong character and talents, and their personalities differ a lot. The author covers their struggles, love, and family relations as the sisters grow up.
Little Women is one of the most popular novels of all times, and it is one of the best family stories.
