"Little Women" is Boston's best novel
After a week of voting, Axios Boston readers have declared Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women" as Boston's best novel.
Driving the news: The story of the March sisters during the Civil War beat "The Weight of Water" by Anita Shreve with 83% of the vote.
Why it matters: Massachusetts has a long literary history and has been home to some of the finest American writers. Our readers had some strong opinions about those literary greats.
What's next: Since you can't congratulate Ms. Alcott directly (she's been dead for 135 years,) go check out her house in Concord for the full historical experience.
Thank you to the hundreds of you who voted!
