And Jo's Boys (1886) completes the “March Family Saga”.
Louisa May Alcott (1832 — 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the Little Women series. Alcott made women's rights integral to her stories, and her fiction became her “most important feminist contribution” — even considering all the efforts Alcott made to help facilitate women's rights during her lifetime.
