Publisher's Summary

Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women; Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy (the first of four books) gives us the March sisters in one evanescent year, from Christmas to Christmas, as they dance back and forth on the delicate, tender line between childhood and adulthood.

By turns as achingly beautiful as it is humorous and wise, fall head over heels for rough-and-tumble Jo, graceful Meg, gentle, gifted Beth, and willful Amy as they struggle, fight, sing, write, run, play, weep, laugh, and love their ways through life in Civil War New England.

This delightful recording is followed by a fascinating conversation between Anne Undeland and Alison Larkin about Louisa May Alcott’s feminist beginnings and why the famous story is still beloved today. And "Happy Women", an essay Louisa May Alcott wrote for Valentine’s Day 1868 challenging the popular belief that a woman needed to be married in order to be happy.

performer, Anne Undeland, is so good!

This wonderful book is now read by someone who really gets it. Professional actor and playwright, Anne Undeland, is truly 5 stars. Great production all around.

Great narration

I've been wanting to read this book for a while and not gotten the chance. Listening to this version on my commute, I've loved Undeland's reading which is both engrossing and entertaining.

Anne Undeland Breathes New Life into Classic

Little Women is a classic that I loved growing up (particularly the early 90s film version); Ms. Undeland's narration does not disappoint! Her delivery is simultaneously enlivened and soothing. A great listen to wind down with at night, make a long car ride fly by, and keep you company while cleaning! If you are debating whether or not to download, go for it!
