Beloved classic Little Women is about the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—and their childhood and teenage years in Massachusetts during the Civil War. They live with their Mother, Marmee, and are close with their neighbours, especially the young man next door, Laurie. Through various struggles, experiences, and romances the girls or "little women" learn who they are and grow into adults. Written in 1868, Little Women was followed by two sequels, Little Men and Jo's Boys. All of these books have found their way into popular culture through film, television and stage adaptaptions, but it is Little Women that remains the most popular.
