A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the evergreen classic novel by Louisa May Alcott.

With their father away fighting in the American Civil War, the four March girls are facing a lean Christmas with their mother. But the sisters' close bond and determination to make the best of things enables them to find happiness despite their poverty.

I have tried so many times to read Little Women but I get to the same point every time (when the older girls go to the new years eve party. I had a rough idea of some of the story but this adaptation was beautiful.

The March girls all have very different personalities but they are all loveable in their own way. I love a full-cast audio and the BBC did an excellent job with these narrators. I went through a lot of emotions in this book. I was immersed in this story so easily. I was welling up on more than one occasion.

It’s easy to see why this is a classic and I am glad that the BBC made this adaptation for those like me who struggle with those classic stories that have a reason for being loved.
