Jo March, the irrepressible tomboy in Little Women, has grown up and married her professor to become Jo Bhaer. Together the Bhaers have established Plumfield-a warm-hearted, informal school where lessons are taught with a dose of laughter. When Nat, a young orphan joins the happy household at Plumfield, he can’ t believe his good fortune. Each day is filled with studying and fun-the boys even enjoy Saturday-night pillow fights. But when Nat gets caught stretching the truth, he discovers there is more to learn in his new home than games and schoolwork. Filled with real-life characters and situations, Louisa M. Alcott’ s spirited classic has touched the hearts and minds of readers from generation to generation. Barbara Caruso’ s dramatic narration transports young adults to the late 1800s when life was simpler but was still packed with plenty of adventures.
