If you read and enjoy Little Women, you'll almost certainly want to read the sequel, Good Wives, so I recommend buying the two-books-in-one version if possible.I first read these books as a child but still love them now. Little Women tells the story of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy - whose father is away fighting in the Civil War. Everyone will be able to identify with at least one of the sisters, which is part of the appeal of the book. Good Wives continues the story as the girls grow up.There are also two more books in the series - Little Men and Jo's Boys.
I found that this novel was overly moralistic and sickly sweet for my tastes but well written nevertheless. I can see the attraction for its target audience. Just not for me.
The book is a story about four sisters-Meg,Jo,Beth,and Amy March.Each sisters has a different plan for her future life.Meg is going to marry John Brooke. Jo wants an exiting life and she wants to be a famous writer. Amy wants to be a painter and she wants to travel to Europe. Beth wants to stay at home.I don't have any sisters. But I think this story appear the bond of brotherfood.
