About this Recording

ALCOTT, L.: Little Women (Abridged)

Little Women, closely based on Louisa May Alcott’s own experience of family life, was first published in 1869 and has never lost its extraordinary power to move and delight: from the heartrending story of gentle Beth to the humorous adventures of tomboyish Jo, and Meg’s vain attempts to cut a fashionable figure in ‘society’.
