In the book Little Women Mrs. Marsh's husband is away at war and the family must depend on help and live very poorly. The girl's are very helpful and get along pretty well. They put on plays and engage in fun activities with one another.
The main conflict that I see is that the girls are having difficulty socializing when they are poor. Some others may identify the conflict as being, the family having to move in and be under the support of an aunt due to the husband's being sent off to war.
The book has a lot of little conflicts and resolutions through out which makes it interesting.
