While it is a struggle after losing the family fortune, they become close friends with Laurie, their wealthy neighbor.

Tomboy Jo, our protagonist, learns to be more ladylike while her elder sister Meg struggles to put aside her love of luxury and learns to follow her heart. Shy Beth must learn to stand up for herself, and baby sister Amy battles her aristocratic pride. When Meg falls in love with John Brooke, Laurie's tutor, it appears that Jo will be next to marry Laurie. But headstrong Jo instead goes to New York to work as a governess, hoping to become a professional writer. While there, she meets German expatriate Professor Bhaer and her interest is immediately sparked.
