Jo's Boys

Book - 1957
Rate this:
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.
