Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the evergreen classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. 
With their father away fighting in the American Civil War, the four March girls are facing a lean Christmas with their mother. But the sisters’ close bond and determination to make the best of things enables them to find happiness despite their poverty.
As the years go by we follow their fortunes as they journey into womanhood. Meg the beauty, Jo the tomboy, shy Beth and precocious Amy will encounter adventure, hardship, joys and disappointments, and learn to meet the challenges of life as they become independent and make their way in the world. While marriage and motherhood may beckon for the sisters, their most enduring love is always for each other. 
First published in 1868 and never out of print since, this iconic coming-of-age tale is a perennial favourite that has touched the hearts of generations of fans. This moving BBC Radio 4 dramatisation stars Natasha J Barnes, Julianna Jennings, Bryony Hannah and Samantha Dakin as Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, with Tara Ward as Mrs March and Alex Lanipekun as Laurie.

My children loved this classic on audio!

I purchased this audio book for my children, so that they could all listen to the classic. They loved it! They said that the dramatic reading really made the story come alive for them.

Excellent short version

I just wish Radio 4 had made a bit more of it. What there is is very well done, proper voice acting not just reading a script.
