Throughout her long and successful career, Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) had a reputation for delighting readers with stories about people whose desperate situations always seemed to improve by the last chapter. This charming piece of fiction, first published nearly a century ago and more recently the basis of an acclaimed motion picture follows that pattern.
Its young heroine, Sara Crewe, falls upon hard times at an English boarding school when her father suddenly dies. Left penniless and at the mercy of a vindictive headmistress, Sara manages despite a multitude of adversities to maintain her optimistic outlook and usual goodness, qualities that do not go unnoticed by a mysterious benefactor who eventually transforms her life.
Set in large, easy-to-read type and newly illustrated by artist Thea Kliros, A Little Princess will captivate romantics of all ages as it tells the riches-to-rags-to-riches tale of a winsome young miss.
