This tale centers on the March household: mother "Marmee" and her four daughters; Meg, Amy, Beth and Jo, and chronicles this New England family's joys and tribulations during the Civil War.

The girls' placid lives are disrupted when one sibling falls ill, and the story becomes as real as life, at its most joyful and painful
