Invincible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a short biography of the life of Louisa May Alcott. The book begins with an introduction to her parents and their life growing up until they meet and marry. It then covers the span of Alcott's life and her work as a nurse, teacher and writer. The reader gets to know all of the real life people behind the beloved characters of Little Women and what inspired Alcott to write the book.
This is not a riveting book but for those who loved any of Alcott's books growing up will enjoy getting to know the writer who was the real Jo March. I am one of those fans and was thoroughly entertained. It has inspired me to re-read the Little Women and her other works.
