   Louisa May Alcott  1832 - 1888 

Little Women is based on Louisa May Alcott's own family life in Massachusetts. It is a year in the life of the four March sisters and focuses in particular on Jo who strives to remove her family from their genteel poverty by becoming a successful writer.
 
Set during the American Civil War, Alcott's highly moral tale is aimed at older children. Its portrait of domestic life offers us the Victorian ideal of perfect womanhood.
 
Since the early 1970s, it has been known that Louisa May Alcott had an alternative writing persona. She published potboiler novels under the pseudonym A. M. Barnard which feature femme fatales quite unlike the characters she created in Little Women.
