Life has been idyllic for Jo March. Happily married, she has been overseeing the rough-and-tumble atmosphere of Plumfield, a boarding school for boys in rural Massachusetts. Then her charmed world explodes around her and she finds herself scrambling to keep some part of her dream alive. In an uphill battle for a woman alone, Jo must call on all the courage, boldness and daring of her youth to keep Plumfield going...and to survive. Out of desperation, she turns to an unlikely source of help - with no idea of the surprising impact it will have on the school, the boys of Plumfield and her own life.

In addition to the rambunctions children of the series, is the burgeoning relationship between Jo Bhaer and the new caretaker of Plumfield, Nick Riley. After the unexpected death of her husband Fritz, (which may alarm many L.M. Alcott fans) Jo finds herself torn between her past and her future. The addition of Nick Riley to the story-line, though a major change in the original plot of the novel, is pivotal to the series. He adds the charm, roughness, and tenderness of a man wrestling with his own past as he quickly falls in love with a woman of strength and courage unlike any he has ever known.
Anyone who purchases this series on DVD (the first 2 include the first 4 episodes) will undoubtedly enjoy it....
The only dissapointing thing is that it are only four episodes on this DVD. I would have liked to see the other episodes that I've grown familiar with.
This show can be a little bit corny but once you've grown used to that you'll learn to love it. Don't buy this DVD as a follow up to the books Little Men and Little Women. Joe's husband has died in this show to make room for a romance between Joe and Nick, a handyman who has come to work for Joe at the school. Because of this it cannot be very true to either book. Even so, I still recommend the DVD.
It can be enjoyed by all ages. I am 15 and have loved it since I was 12. Kids would like it as would adults, so it's good for the whole family. enjoy!
