This paper explains that Louisa May Alcott's novel "Little Women", which is about four sisters growing up during and following the Civil War, entertains and instructs the reader about many issues such as true love, charity and family loyalty.

The paper describes the marriages of the parents and three of the sisters to illustrate that people can be happy without money as long as they have love.
