Jo March isn’t your typical Victorian lady. She’s indecorous and headstrong, and one day she’s going to be a great American novelist. As she and her sisters grow up in the middle of the Civil War, they strive to be brave, intelligent, and imaginative young women. But as adulthood approaches, each sister must negotiate her private ambitions with society’s expectations. In a war-torn world defined by gender, class, and personal tragedy, Jo March gives us her greatest story: that of the March sisters, four dreamers destined to be imperfect little women.

“Ms. Hamill’s feminist-friendly spin on the classics never fail to sound an engagingly original note… an ingenious compassion of Alcott’s novel that is by turns funny and painfully poignant…it touched me to the heart.” —The Wall Street Journal
