I have read this book before too, and I agree that it is very good. It shows how each of the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, go through joys and trials in their life. Such as first love, sickness, school, hard work, married life, and the pain of a beloved family members death. The March sisters have, 'castles in the sky', their hopes and dreams of one day being rich and having pretty clothing to staying at home forever and ever. Even though these sisters are all very different, they all share the fact that they love their mother dearly, who helps them in physical and spiritual growth in the Lord. This is a beutiful story about true family life and love, one of my favorite books. All the 'little women' and mothers will love this book and be very glad they read it.

It's a little bit of a hard read, but there's a reason it's a classic. I'm only ten (not kidding), and even though it takes a little while to get into it, this book is still a great read, and is definitly worth your time. Go Little Women!
