From Our Editors

By continuing the life story of her most popular heroine, the boyish and helter-skelter Jo March, Louisa May Alcott created a whole new set of characters as lovable and complex as the more famous Meg, Beth and Amy in this sequel to Good Wives. Little Men catches up with the literary-minded Jo after her marriage to the rotund and affectionate Mr. Bhaer. Now a comfortable mother of two and the matron of an orphanage for 12 boys, Jo has her hands as full of small domestic adventures — and upsets — as ever! With the wisdom and warmth that comes of a loving, open heart, Jo and her husband help these small lost souls come to terms with themselves and grow up to be strong, capable men with much to offer the world.
