An upbringing novel, filmed many times, and undeservedly ignored in
Russia, while in America more than one generation of children has grown up on it.
The four sisters from the March family live in poverty, but they are happy to be content with what they have and will always help their neighbors in need. Each of the girls has a bright character and talent.
They always experience sorrows and losses together, and the most joyful moments of life, which the eldest of them, the tomboy Joe, tries to capture in words on paper.
The best classical prose for girls is read by the voice of a generation — Tutta Larsen.
