From the Publisher
Better known for her novels Little Women and Little Men, Louisa May Alcott continued the story of her feisty protagonist Jo in this final novel chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the March family. Entertaining, surprising, and overall a joy to read, Jo's Boys is nevertheless shaded by a bittersweet tone, for with it Alcott brought her wonderful series to an end.
Beginning ten years after Little Men, Jo's Boys revisits Plumfield, the New England school still presided over by Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer. Jo's boys -- including rebellious Dan, sailor Emil, and promising musicain Nat -- are grown; Jo herself remains at the center of this tale, holding her boys fast through shipwreck and storm, disappointment... and even murder.

Popular for more than a century, the series that began with Little Women continues to hold universal appeal with its powerful and affectionate depiction of family -- the safe haven where the prodigal can always return, adversity is never met alone, and our dreams of being cherished, no matter what our flaws, come true. With this new edition of Jo's Boys, readers once again have access to a treasured classic by one of America's best-loved writers.

I enjoyed the story in Little women as a child so the name of the writer and the title caught my eye and I took the book home with me from the meeting tonight. Thanks for the book!

It took two years before I finally grabbed this boo from my shelf. At first it was a struggle to read this book, the print is quite small and numerous characters were not familiar to me, I wonder if I ever read Little men or at least I didn't remember anything of it. The characters from Little Women I recognized. I even considered leaving this book unread but then I finally got into it and wanted to find out how the story ends. Old-fashioned values and way of life seemed so pure and beautiful to me. Young people got married or engaged young. Not all of them married though but used their singleness to great deeds instead. Shipwreck and murder bring some excitement to this book. This book is on many wishlists but I'll try to find a Finnish reader for it first before sending it abroad.
