This book was converted from its physical edition to the digital format by a community of volunteers. You may find it for free on the web.
Which means they will always be free (on Amazon and other places)...so, there's no rush unless you're plan on reading it now. I personally wait and look for them free with better covers.

She was a prolific writer. Little Woman is somewhat of an autobiography; and if you've read it, you know Jo can't stop writing and reading.

And yes, her sister Beth really does die. And Amy (Abby) was a gifted artist; if you take a tour of Orchard house her artwork is still there. Rich Aunt March was really the widow of our founding father John Hancock. One of the books in kindle that I learned a lot from is one that tells her father's story, Little Women Letters From the House of Alcott. I read it one day while waiting in a doctors office and while it is not the most exciting book in the world it gives you a glimpse into the mind of an independent thinker, a man who understands it is important to grow children spiritually just as much as physically and intellectually. He was friends with Thoreau and Emerson and it was an age when people spent time thinking and examining life. They also, sadly, spent time starving.

There is also a PBS show on her in the American Masters series that is very interesting.

By the way, if you order these for free, the audibles become very inexpensive for any of them - I think Little women is the most expensive at 4.99. For instance, Under the Lilacs, which is read by Flo Gibson, a very good narrator, and has a normal member price of over $12, ends up coming down to about $3.
