Little Women, Little Men, Jos Boys by Louisa May Alcott

Set in a small New England town during the Civil War years and Reconstruction, Little Women; or, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy (1868-69) introduces Alcotts remarkable heroines, the March sisters, and above all her alter ego Jo March, with her literary ambition and independent spirit. The novel chronicles the episodes, large and small, of the sisters progress toward adulthood: their amateur theatricals, sibling rivalries and reconciliations, friendships and romance, lessons about work and charity, and the loss of loved ones. Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jos Boys (1871) extends the March family saga. Jo - now married to the good-natured Professor Bhaer, and with sons of her own - has become the unflappable matron of an extended family at Plumfield, a school the Bhaers have founded with Aunt Marchs legacy. Jos rambunctious youngsters grow up in an atmosphere full of high spirits and misadventure - a world enlivened by Alcotts unique powers of observation and sympathy. In Jos Boys, and How They Turned Out (1886), her final novel, Alcott returns to the familiar precincts of Plumfield. Ten years later, Jos pupils have started to make their way in the world, and find themselves tested: Josie longs to be an actress; Emil, now a sailor, is shipwrecked; Dan, out West, lands in prison; Nat, studying music in Germany, in tempted into living beyond his means. Faced with new obstacles, they look back on the lessons learned at home, and begin to appreciate the real value of their Plumfield education.--BOOK JACKET.
