The final novel chronicling the adventures and misadventures of the March family, Jo's Boys is entertaining, surprising, and an overall joy to listen to.
Set ten years after Little Men, Jo's Boys revisits the one-time members of that ''wilderness of boys'' that once resided at Plumfield, the New England boarding school still presided over by Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer. Jo's boys -- including sailor Emil, promising musician Nat, and rebellious Dan -- are grown up and making their ways in the world with varying degrees of triumph and disaster. Jo herself remains at the center of this tale, holding her boys fast through shipwreck and storm, disappointment. . . and even murder.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY.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.
