"The Mother-Daughter Book Club" by Heather Vogel Frederick is set in Concord, Mass. The book, the first in a series of five, brings together a group of four energetic sixth-grade girls and their mothers through a book club reading of "Little Women."
Following the girls' adventures, the book touches upon the Revolutionary War history of the town through battle re-enactments and historical celebrations. The girls discuss what life was like for Louisa May Alcott, who lived in Concord when "Little Women" was published in 1869 and whose home still stands in Concord as a museum. The book makes many references to "Little Women" and Louisa May Alcott's characters, but it is not necessary to have read "Little Women" to enjoy "The Mother-Daughter Book Club."
