At the end of "Little Women, " Jo March inherits the Plumfield estate. Now she and her husband have turned it into an experimental school for boys. Here is the continued story of Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer. Revised reissue.
At Plumfield, an experimental school for boys, the little scholars can do very much as they please, even slide down banisters. For this is what writer Jo Bhaer, once Jo March of "Little Women," always wanted: a house "swarming with boys...in all stages of...effervescence." At the end of "Little Women," Jo inherited the Plumfield estate from her diamond-in-the-rough Aunt March. Now she and her husband, Professor Bhaer, provide their irrepressible charges with a very different sort of education—and much love. In fact, Jo confesses, she hardly knows "which I like best, writing or boys." Here is the story of the ragged orphan Nat, spoiled Stuffy, wild Dan, and all the other lively inhabitants of Plumfield, whose adventures have captivated generations of readers.
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) is the author of the beloved "Little Women", which was based on her own experiences growing up in New England with her parents and three sisters. More than a century after her death, Louisa May Alcott's stories continue to delight readers of all ages.
