Summary expansion
A heart-warming coming-of-age story set during the American Civil War Little Women introduces one of the world's favourite heroines in Jo March. While Father is away at the war Jo and her sisters Meg Beth and Amy remain in Massachusetts with "Marmee" and try very hard to fulfil their promise to be good. Through the events of one turbulent year Jo learns how to turn her strong will into an important asset. Generations of children and adults have identified with Jo March in both the book and in several popular movie versions. American author Jane Gerver infuses her lively retelling with all the tenderness and humour of the original. Information panels include quotations from Louisa May Alcott's journal that put the story into context and explore the parallels between the March family and the Alcott family
