    This favorite book for children, based on the author's own youthful experiences, describes the family life of the Marches in a small New England community. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are raised in genteel poverty by their loving mother, Marmee, while their father serves as a chaplain during the Civil War. The story explores their domestic adventures, their attempts to increase the family's income, their friendship with the neighboring Laurence family, and their later love affairs and destinies as women.

    Story
    Would you listen to Little Women again? Why?

    I'd consider listening to this again with one of my children or nieces. It was a wholesome story that was incredibly moving.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Little Women?

    I felt so bad for Laurie at his low point, but chuckled because I knew that Jo was right.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the girls playing at Pilgrim's Progress, but I was moved the most by Beth's final days.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Four diamonds in the rough: cut, polished and sparkle in love's light.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book at your own peril. I listened to it as an audio book and can attest that you will laugh, cry, celebrate and mourn along with the characters in this book. That might sound wonderful, but when you're walking along in public with earphones in and start cracking up laughing, you'll get the strangest looks from people.

    I fell in love with the March daughters in this book and find it a wonderful tale with a strong morality. While I don't have daughters, I'm picking up a copy of this book for my nieces who I hope enjoy the story as much as I did.

    As I understand it, the book was broken into two parts - Little Women and Good Wives. Together, they were excellent. In the unabridged version I listened to, the narration by C. M. Hébert was outstanding. By her tone of voice, I could easily distinguish between the dozen or so characters she was portraying.

    Overall, I thought this book was really good and I highly recommend it. It's a wholesome tale that will move you and very much might stir you to become a better person.
