The Other Alcott by Elise HooperMost people who have read Little Women would rank Amy March as the least favorite of the sisters. She was the selfish and spoiled little sister, presumably based on Louisa Alcott's little sister May. The reality is that she was a talented, creative and determined young woman, not afraid to resist societal expectations and forge her own way as an independent woman. This is her remarkable story.Avenue Flower Shop and Wine Bar10632 S. Cicero
