Synopsis: In Little Women, Little Men, and other beloved books, Louisa May Alcott recounted the triumphs and tragedies of the March sisters. Jo’s Boys is a sequel, published some years later, that continues the heartwarming story, depicting the careers and marriages of the sisters’ children and their schoolmates.
Jo, the irrepressible heroine of Little Women and later the maternal Mrs. Bhaer in Little Men, now welcomes her former students back to Plumfield, and enjoys their reunion with the young ladies of the March clan. Nat, the orphaned street musician, has become a music student in nearby Boston; business-minded Tommy is studying medicine; Dan, a troubled but good-hearted boy, is still restless, having tried sheep ranching in Australia and gold mining in California. The original “little men” have grown up and scattered, but they are still — and probably always will be — Jo’s boys.
Enhanced with seven illustrations by Natalie Carabetta, this delightful story — carefully abridged to retain the flavor and charm of the original — will captivate new generations of readers and listeners and delight Alcott fans of all ages.
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.
