Set in 1863 in New England, this story features four spirited teenaged sisters, Jo, Amy, Beth and Meg, who always find ways to bring life to troubled times. With their chaplain father away serving in the Civil War and their mother doing all she can to hold things together at home, the girls employ creativity and courage to help their mother while pursuing their own passions--Jo's writing, Amy's art, Beth's service to the poor, and Meg's pursuit to become a proper young lady. Next-door neighbor Theodore "Laurie"? Laurence, a lonely but charming teen, can't resist the energy and grace of these little women and helps them to endure one trial after another.
