Little Men by Louisa May Alcott has always been one of my favourite books. It’s a story full of compassion, grace, hope and transformed lives. However, the author is more known for her book, Little Women.
Publisher Thomas Niles suggested Alcott write a book about girls. He thought that would have widespread appeal. At first, Alcott wasn’t interested, but she wrote in her journal, “Niles, asked me to write a girl’s book. I said I’d try.”
