A Hopeful Heart: Louisa May Alcott Before Little Women

Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy — how did these cherished characters from the beloved literary classic Little Women come to be? Louisa May Alcott, the author of one of the most famous "girl" books of all time, was anything but a well-mannered young lady. A tomboy as well as a ravenous reader, Louisa took comfort in fictional characters that were as passionate and willful as she was — and whose wild imaginations were a match for her own. She was often found roaming the woods near her home in Concord, Massachusetts, or exploring the natural world in the company of the great Transcendentalist thinkers Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.

Here is a beautiful portrait of Louisa May Alcott, a woman influenced by her father, a penniless philosopher; her mother, with whom she shared a great connection; and, of course, her three sisters. Featuring unique indigo illustrations, this stunning biography by Deborah Noyes unveils how Louisa's natural spirit, loving family, and unconventional circumstances inspired the timeless masterpiece that is Little Women.
