Little Women opens on the lives of the four March girls just as the two youngest are entering adolescence. Meg and Jo are teenagers. Each girl has hopes for the kind of life she will lead, but each ends with a very different future than she would have imagined for herself. Meg, the one who most dearly misses the wealth of the old days before her father had lost his fortune, marries Mr. Brooke, the tutor of Laurie Laurence, and lives in a very modest house. Jo aspires to be a writer of torrid gothic fiction, but as she faces challenges in lif, she finds the mixture of pathos and heartfelt sincerity that enable her to write stories that have the publisher begging for more of the same. Beth, the third child, is the only one without ambitions, whose only desire is to live at home with her parents and practice her music. She is a model of selflessness and gentleness, almost too good to be real. She complains the least about the things they can’t have and always has just the right kind word for any situation. Her primary fault is that she is so extremely shy that she is unable to attend a public school and therefore gets her schooling at home. Amy is the youngest and the one who intends to marry for money. She wants to move about in high society and have wealthy friends, expensive jewels and rich clothes. However, when she actually gets the opportunity to fulfill her dreams, she turns it away, turning instead to Laurie, their childhood friend. The irony is that in giving up her dreams of marrying wealth, she actually gets it anyway as Laurie’s grandfather Mr. Laurence is very wealthy and will leave his entire estate to Laurie. In the end all of the girls learn that no amount of wealth can bring more happiness than that of a close and loving family.
