      Lizzie, Alcott's beloved sister who died at the age of twenty-three, was the model for Beth, and May, Alcott's strong-willed sister, was portrayed as Amy, whose pretentious affectations cause her occasional downfalls. Laurence's grandson, is invited to one of the dances, as Meg's friends incorrectly think she is in love with him.

      Brooke goes to Washington to help Mr. While with the March parents, Brooke confesses his love for Meg. Miss Crocker — An old and poor spinster who likes to gossip and who has few friends. He comes from a small asteroid, where he lived alone until a rose grew there. The marriage is deferred until her unexpected inheritance of her Aunt March's home a year later. On Christmas Day, a year after the book's opening, the girls' father returns from the war.

      Many travelers book their cruise vacation within just a few months of sailing, hoping for a last-minute discounted price. Alcott readily corresponded with readers who addressed her as "Miss March" or "Jo", and she did not correct them. The irony was that Little Women, which Alcott embarked on with reluctance and wrote with formulaic conventions in mind, turned out to be the book that made her name and her fortune. Jo decides she wants a bit of adventure and to put distance between herself and Laurie, hoping he will forget his feelings.

Do you think this book's ending is sad or happy? Jo confides in Marmee, telling her that she loves Laurie but she loves him like a brother and that she could not love him in a romantic way.
