Living in poverty, their father gone to war, the March girls have only their mother--and themselves...

Meg's romantic, energetic, ready to start a family of her own; Beth's introspective, peaceful, afraid of everything except her dolls and music; Amy's beautiful, artistic, determined to live among the rich and famous; Jo's arrogant, hot-tempered, funny, a writer who keeps pet rats and detests being a girl.

They love each other, hate each other, fight with, scold, nag, tease, and protect each other, through days of joyous triumph and dark tragedy. For each girl, in her heart, knows she has something more precious than money: Sisters.
