|Plot Summary of Invincible Louisa|
|"Invincible Louisa is the story of Louisa May Alcott and her family. The book begins with the early stages of her life--her birth and childhood, and the many moves that her family made over the years.
Louisa was a stuborn, ambitious girl. She had dreams of being a writer or an actor. She had three sisters, Anna, Elizabeth, and May who were the models for her other characters in Little Women.
The book also tells the heartwarming, exciting story of the Alcott family, and how they grew and changed over the years. Louisa's father, Bronson Alcott, was a transcendental philosopher who knew Emerson and Thoreau. The girls also became good friends with them.
Most significantly, the story tells how Louisa become a published author and saved her family from poverty at last. The story is well worth the read for anyone who loves the book Little Women--and anyone who likes stories about extraordinary people."
