Summary

Jo's Boys follows the progress of the Plumfield Boys (Jo Bhaer's idyllic school), ten years on. Now college students, the boys have evolved into complex creatures. Falling in love and making their way in life, they are faced with trials and tribulations. Emil's career as a sailor runs into trouble as he is shipwrecked on his first voyage as second mate. Dan goes west to seek his fortune but soon finds himself in prison, but also in love with the unobtainable Bess - Amy's beautiful daughter. Nat embarks on a musical career in Europe and thus leaves behind his Daisy. Tommy takes on medical school. Throughout it all Jo presides over her brood, counselling, comforting and guiding her 'boys'. Touching, moving and tumultuous, this is Alcott's writing at its best, with the reader heavily invested in her complex characters and their fate.
