About the Author

Louisa May Alcott, November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888, was an American novelist and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard, under which Alcott wrote novels for young adults. Alcott died at age 55 of a stroke in Boston, on March 6, 1888, two days after her father's death. - Wikipedia

This book is absolutely heartwarming and beautiful. A story about love, yet filled with adventure. I recommend this book because even though it is a bit long, a 12 year old (me), was able to read it with ease and understand the morals and theme of the book.
