Goodreads Summary:

ittle Men, or Life at Plumfield with Jo’s Boys, is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott, first published in 1871. The novel reprises characters from Little Women and is considered by some the second book in an unofficial Little Women trilogy, which is completed with Alcott’s 1886 novel Jo’s Boys, and How They Turned Out: A Sequel to “Little Men”.
