The main characters of the novel are four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. They are quite different: the first one is Meg who is the maturest of the sisters, while Jo is quite tomboy yet she wants to become a writer, Amy is frivolous, Beth is very sensitive and she loves music. They live with their mother in a new neighborhood in Massachusetts. Their father is living abroad because he is acting as a pastor, miles from home, involved in the American Civil War. They are poor but their aunt is very rich. The girls decide that they will buy themselves a present in order to brighten their Christmas. Soon, however, they change their minds and decide that instead of buying presents for themselves, they will buy presents for their mother, Marmee. On Christmas morning, the girls still find gifts and then, Marmee encourages them to give away their breakfast to a poor family, the Hummels. Their neighbour, Mister Laurence, is a rich old man, sees them and decides to help them. Meg and Jo are invited to attend a New Year’s Party at Meg’s wealthy friend house, Sally Gardier. During the party, Meg sprains her ankle and Laurie escort the sisters home. Jo visits Laurie when he is gets sick.  The outspoken and cheeky character of the girl really pleases Mr. Laurence who has the reputation of beign a gruff and stren man. So the March sisters start gioing to their nighbours’ house. Mr. Laurence sympathizes with all of them, especially the timid Beth and he gives her a piano. Over the months Amy is punished at school and then retired. During a dance, Meg discovers that people think she wants to marry Laurie just because she aims at his heritage. Jo published a story after a thousand adventures and a clash with Amy who burns Jo’s and Jo, in her anger, nearly lets Amy drown while ice-s-kating. That year, the four sisters take part at the Pickwick Club, for whom they write a family newspaper. One dark day, the family receives a telegram saying that Mr. March is sick in the hospistal in Washington D.C. Marmee goes to tend to him and Jo sells her hair to help finance the trip. Marmee decides to leave to stay with her husband and the four daughters have to manage the house by themeselves. Beth goes to visit the Hummels and after one of her visits, she contracts scarlet fever from the Hukmmel Baby. The disease does not kill her but permanently weakens her health conditions. In the last chapters, the partial happy ending sees the girl heals, the father returs from the front and Mr. Brooke, Laurie’s guardian, fall in love with Meg, with great dismay of Jo who begins to show a certain intolerance to love.
