   schema:description "While her sister Louisa crafts stories, May Alcott is a talented and dedicated artist, taking lessons in Boston, turning down a marriage proposal from a well-off suitor, and facing scorn for entering what is very much a man’s profession. When Louisa's Little Women is published, its success eases the family's financial burdens. But May is struck to the core by the portrayal of selfish, spoiled "Amy March." Is this what her beloved sister really thinks of her? May embarks on a quest to discover her own true identity, as an artist and a woman."@en ;
