Little WomeneBook - 1994
"Watch and pray, dear, never get tired of trying, and never think it is impossible to conquer your fault."It's Christmas Eve in the March household, but this will be a Christmas like no other: their father is away fighting in the American Civil War and the March sisters and their mother must try to make ends meet while their father is at war. Although life can be hard for the family, and times are tough, this is an extraordinary story of triumph over adversity, recounting in exquisite detail, the lives, loves, trials, and triumphs of these four very different sisters. The stories of Jo, Beth, Amy, and Meg have charmed readers over five generations and has earned its place as a classic coming of age novel.
