On My Bookshelf by Lynda La Plante...
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott inspired me when I was very young. Years later I watched the film starring Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, and was taken aback at how the characters were transported to the screen.
Little Women is one of the best-loved children's stories of all time, based on the author's own youthful experiences. It describes the family of the four March sisters living in a small New England community. Meg, the eldest, is pretty and wishes to be a lady; Jo, at fifteen is ungainly and unconventional with an ambition to be an author; Beth is a delicate child of thirteen with a taste for music and Amy is a blonde beauty of twelve. The story of their domestic adventures, their attempts to increase the family income, their friendship with the neighbouring Laurence family, and their later love affairs remains as fresh and beguiling as ever.
