‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott

614jWAame8L._SL300_ First published in 1869, Little Women is the story of four sisters growing up against the background of the American Civil War. Alcott wrote the book at the urging of the publisher, Thomas Niles, who was seeking a story about girls that would have popular appeal. Although it was commenced essentially as a children’s book, it developed into something of a bildungsroman, which touches on more serious issues such as the difficulties faced by single-parent families, the death of a sibling, and fractured relationships.

I play Hortense, Miss Kate, Miss Lamb, Maid, and Girl. Listen to a sample of Miss Kate here.
