We know we're not the only ones who read and re-read Little Women during our adolescent years. We identified with Jo's attitude and wished we were kind like Beth. Somehow Louisa May Alcott was able to capture the emotions of girls and women, irrespective of era. As children we enjoyed the story, and as adults we're fascinated by the forward thinking Alcott expressed in her writing. Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women ($20) is a must-read for anyone who loved her novels.
