Publisher's Summary

Sara Crewe is the 1888 serialized story Frances Hodgson Burnett eventually turned into the popular novel A Little Princess, which was published in 1915. Much of the plot is the same, a little girl with a wealthy father is left at a boarding school in London, while he goes abroad. Sara is a charming and popular girl whose fortunes reverse when her father dies, apparently without money. Sarah is treated cruelly by the headmistress of the school, but her fortunes take another turn when a watchful neighbor takes an interest in her.

A great deal of the story does, its hard to pinpoint just one.

Any additional comments?

I remember reading this book as a child, and how Sara remained dignified in the face of all the obstacles she faced. Even though she was often ridiculed by her peers and those who were supposed to take care of her after the change in her financial situation.
I have young children, I've read the book to my daughter and since we downloaded this audio book we've listened to it twice. I can't wait to share more books authored by Francis Hodgson Burnett
