"Jo, Meg, Beth, Amy: they are the "little women", daughters of a minister who is away fighting in the American Civil War as the story begins.
Overjoyed when their father returns safely, they settle down to a happy life with him and have many adventures, lovable and funny.
The girls start a Pickwick Club; Amy clips a peg on her nose to improve its shape, and Beth nearly dies of scarlet fever which she catches through nursing a sick neighbour. And when the Laurence boy becomes friendly with them, is it romance? and for whom? Then Aunt March comes on the scene, Aunt March full of such sound common sense. She solves their knotty personal problems and life flows on again for this delightful family: smoothly, happily."
