Good Wives

Written by Louisa May Alcott

Part of the Collins Classics Series

Good Wives Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. `Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go, and it makes the end so easy.' In mid-nineteenth-century Massachusetts, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March continue to encounter both joys and sorrows along life's path, as they journey into womanhood both close to home and further away. The highs and lows of the four young women's lives are shared with each other, and supported by the bond of their sisterhood. This second part of `Little Women' - sometimes published in a single volume - contains all the warmth and charm for which Louisa May Alcott's writing is universally admired.

Good Wives Press Reviews

`Six generations of readers have found in the story of the March family universal truths about girls, families and growing up.' Guardian `The novel's brilliance lies in its unflinchingly honest representation of sympathetic but flawed women' Independent `America's best-loved author for the young' New York Review of Books
