Hot-headed, literary tomboy Jo, sweet Beth, responsible Meg and spoiled but worldly Amy are the March sisters. While they may squabble amongst themselves as they grow up in the rigid confines of nineteenth-century Massachusetts society, they will also face hardship and terrible loss, united in their parents' love and their high expectations as wives, women and citizens.

Louisa May Alcott wrote her first novel, The Inheritance, at age seventeen, but it went unpublished for nearly 150 years until 1997. Of course, Ms. Alcott is best known for Little Women, which she wrote in two parts. The first volume, alternately titled Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, was published in 1868, and the second volume, Good Wives, was published in 1869. Like Jo in Little Women, Louisa also wrote many "blood and thunder" tales, which were published in popular periodicals of the day. She did not openly claim authorship for many of these Gothic thriller stories, using the pseudonym, "A. M. Barnard" for some and remaining completely anonymous for others.
