Popular for more than a century, the series that began with “Little Women” continues to hold universal appeal with its powerful and affectionate depiction of family — the safe haven where the prodigal can always return, adversity is never met alone, and our dreams of being cherished, no matter what our flaws, come true. With this new edition of “Jo's Boys,” readers once again have access to a treasured classic by one of America's best-loved writers.
