Reader's note

This beautiful blue illustrated book written by Louisa May Alcott follows the lives of the four March sisters; talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy, and details their passage from childhood to womanhood; united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War. It is loosely based on the lives of the author and her three sisters. This book explores timeless themes such as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America.
