Jo’s Boys – Louisa May Alcott

This sequel to Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Little Men continues the heartwarming story of the careers and marriages of the March sisters’ children and their schoolmates.  In welcoming back former students to Plumfield, a school for boys, Jo and her husband Professor Bhaer learn that Nat, the orphaned street musician, has become a music student in nearby Boston; business-minded Tommy is studying medicine; Dan, a troubled but good-hearted boy, is still restless, having tried sheep ranching in Australia and gold mining in California.  Now grown up and widely scattered, the original “little men” still remain “Jo’s boys”.

This is such a classic and good ending to the stories begun in Little Women and Little Men.  I loved getting to meet these boys in Little Men, but I really enjoyed getting to see them mature into adults.  -Jessica, Teen Librarian.
