Summary

Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women; Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy (the first of four books) gives us the March sisters in one evanescent year, from Christmas to Christmas, as they dance back and forth on the delicate, tender line between childhood and adulthood.

By turns as achingly beautiful as it is humorous and wise, fall head over heels for rough-and-tumble Jo, graceful Meg, gentle, gifted Beth, and willful Amy as they struggle, fight, sing, write, run, play, weep, laugh, and love their ways through life in Civil War New England.

This delightful recording is followed by a fascinating conversation between Anne Undeland and Alison Larkin about Louisa May Alcott’s feminist beginnings and why the famous story is still beloved today. And "Happy Women", an essay Louisa May Alcott wrote for Valentine’s Day 1868 challenging the popular belief that a woman needed to be married in order to be happy.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Anne Undeland captivates listeners with her exquisite narration of Part One of this classic. (The novel was originally published in two parts.) Listeners are effortlessly transported into the lives of the March family in Civil War-era New England. Undeland creates distinct and vibrant portraits of these beloved characters--Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy, Marmee, and Laurie--and superbly captures the sisters' great enjoyment of games, plays, crafts, and music, as well as Jo's start as an author. Themes of women's roles, family, and sacrifice for others remain relevant for contemporary listeners. Undeland adeptly conveys French words, as well as the occasional accent, including Irish and German. An afterword presents a stimulating conversation between producer Alison Larkin and Undeland."
