Louisa May Alcott stands as a great writer on the basis of Little Women alone. A book that has started so many girls off as dedicated readers even 150 years after it was written deserves plaudits, but she wrote so much more. I haven't read all her work simply because of availability and cost... at at least £3 each a whole oevre soon adds up, but when I knew I was dedicated to getting a Kindle I invested in this. It is so good. All her novels, easy to read and ready when I am in a classic mood. I will take great pleasure in re-reading a few favourites and in seeing what of her religion and views on simplicity have seeped into her other works.
