Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott (1832 -1888) was an American novelist. She is best known for the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Little Women was set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts, and published in 1868. This novel is loosely based on her childhood experiences with her three sisters. Alcott's literary success arrived with the publication by the Roberts Brothers of the first part of Little Women: or Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Part two, or Part Second, also known as Good Wives, followed the March sisters into adulthood and their respective marriages. Little Men detailed Jo's life at the Plumfield School that she founded with her husband Professor Bhaer at the conclusion of Part Two of Little Women. Jo's Boys completed the "March Family Saga". In Little Women, Alcott based her heroine "Jo" on herself. But whereas Jo marries at the end of the story, Alcott remained single throughout her life. In her later life, Alcott became an advocate for women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts, in a school board election. Alcott, along with Elizabeth Stoddard, Rebecca Harding Davis, Anne Moncure Crane, and others, were part of a group of female authors during the Gilded Age who addressed women's issues in a modern and candid manner. Alcott, who continued to write until her death, suffered chronic health problems in her later years. Alcott died of a stroke in Boston, on March 6, 1888, at age 55, two days after visiting her father's deathbed. Her last words were "Is it not meningitis?"

    I Also Recommend:

    I liked it better than I thought I would...

    I usually like Louisa May Alcott's books (exception: Under the Lilacs). I was afraid of reading this for fear it would be too much like Under the Lilacs, but I was wrong. I liked this a lot, and it would be one of my favorites by Alcott, if I didn't like Eight Cousins, An Old-Fashioned Girl, and Little Women so much! I liked the book for the main reason that Alcott has again inspired me to become a better, more responsible person. I enjoyed reading about the personal homemaking ambitions of Molly and Merry, and how they succeeded and inspired others. Merry's goal of beautifying the space she lived in was motivating. Anybody can learn a lesson or two from this story. I actually cared about the characters involved (and I won't tell any spoilers!). It's really too bad there isn't as sequel to this about when all the kids are grown up, like in the other books Alcott has written. About the only thing I didn't like was the fact that it felt like Mrs. Minot took the place of Jill's mother when they came to live with them. After the move, Mrs. Minot took it upon herself to teach, raise, school, and cultivate Jill, and poor Mrs. Pecq disappeared, only to be mentioned as "the housekeeper." I felt sorry for her. I enjoyed reading about the fun activities young people of the day were involved in (May Daying, picnicing, boating, etc.). Something that surprised me was the young people "pairing up" as they did. They are sweet on each other, but nothing more. I was expecting to read about 19th century teenagers as perfect little adults, but not so. While being mature and responsible in the main, they are not "angels", they have their flaws, and they were not so "old" that they couldn't still enjoy being children-- even at the ages of 13, 15, etc. What a contrast to today's typical teen! While we try to act oh so "old", we usually lack genuine maturity and responsibility. I'd say this is a healthy book for all types of readers, esp. preteens, teens, and young adults. Some say it is too "preachy", "old-fashioned", "out-dated" and "moral". While I don't think it's preachy, if the story seems so sickening to the reader because of the "wholesome goodness" in it, I think that is the fault of the reader, not the book.

    A Touching and Heart-warming Novel

    This book follows the lives of Jack and Janey (nicknamed Jill for her close friendship with Jack) after a sledding accident they have. Jack is quick to recover, but Jill is feared to be crippled forever. Read how Jack and Jill's friends come to the rescue and how bittersweet memories teach the children life's sometimes hard lessons. There was not a moment when I wanted to put the cozy book down! Alcott knows how to tell a good story for all ages and teach good lessons. The ending is fulfilling and happy, as Alcott knew her audience would like to know the futures of the young friends.
