The second novel in the Little Women series follows the further adventures of the now-married Jo March, her two sons, and her school for boys.
After inheriting the Plumfield estate at the end of Little Women, Jo March and her husband, Prof. Friedrich Bhaer, have opened an experimental boys’ school for orphans and troubled teens. Along with Nathaniel “Nat” Blake—the new boy with a musical talent and a penchant for lying—wild Dan and the other students embark on a rollicking journey of missteps and misadventures, guided by the loving hand of Jo and her family.
“A brilliant family tale.” —thebookwormery
“Alcott still knows how to spin a domestic tale with perfect ease. . . . A true classic in every sense of the word. If you loved the March sisters, there is a good chance you will love the boys and girls at Plumfield almost as much. There are definitely some tearjerkers in this one as well but for those who still haven’t read it, I won’t spoil the surprises in store.” —The Silver Petticoat Review
