These following characters are the main characters of the novel and the other characters you will face them while reading the novel .Margaret "Meg" Marsh: she is at sixteen, she is the older sister. Very beautiful, somewhat old-fashioned. She is the most responsible and helps to do household matters while their mother is away.

Josephine "Joe" Marsh: The heroine of the novel, and similar in character to Louis Alcott herself, has a masculine character at the age of fifteen. She is very candid and has a passion for writing, as well as a bold nature that often causes her trouble. She is close to her younger sister Beth, who is trying to help her become a nicer person.

Elizabeth "Beth" Marsh: she is at the age of thirteen, quiet and a good piano player, she loves dolls and cats, very obedient and shy, she prefers to study at home and keep away from the public.

Amy Cortis Marsh: The younger sister at the age of 12, when the story begins, is described by Alcott as a talented artist and a young girl with curly hair and blue eyes and a flat nose; apparently because Joe had dropped her when she was a child. Amy is keenly aware of this imbalance, and in the first chapters she seeks to "cure" this imbalance by wearing laundry clips on her nose while she sleeps. She cares about her family.

Margaret Marsh: The mother of the girls and the head of the family while her husband was away.
