Publisher’s Description

Grown-up Meg, tomboyish Jo, timid Beth, and precocious Amy. The four March sisters couldn’t be more different. But with their father away at war, and their mother working to support the family, they have to rely on one another. Whether they’re putting on a play, forming a secret society, or celebrating Christmas, there’s one thing they can’t help wondering: Will Father return home safely?

“Watch and pray, dear, never get tired of trying, and never think it is impossible to conquer your fault.”

“Let us be elegant or die!”

“Don’t try to make me grow up before my time…”
