The lovable Jo March-introduced to us in Little Women-is now married, with two sons of her own and an adopted family of twelve boys. And she couldn't be happier. Since starting an informal school at Plumfield, Jo and Professor Bhaer provide a haven for poor orphaned boys who thrive on warmth, goodness, and the affectionate interest of the March and Bhaer families. Sometimes it's difficult to tame the manners and spirits of wild boys who have had no nurturing. But the Bhaers have time for all and are rewarded with the trust of the boys, who confide all their hopes, plans, ambitions, and misfortunes.
