Summary

To prepare his daughter, Sara, for society, wealthy widower Captain Ralph Crewe enrolls her in Miss Minchin's Select Seminary for Young Ladies. Unspoiled and genial, Sara is given all the luxuries her father can afford - and the obsequious Miss Minchin is happy to indulge. But when her father dies and his fortune is lost, Sara is forced into servitude, stripped of her privileges and possessions, and subjected to Miss Minchin's true cruel nature.

But as A Little Princess proves, with cleverness, resilience, selfless goodwill, and true friends, a child can be rewarded with infinite riches.

Loved it!

This was my first time reading this classic novel, unabridged as well and I absolutely loved it!!! Sarah was such a loveable and admirable character, wise beyond her age! Beautifully written story! The narrator for the audio book did an excellent job! I especially loved her accents for different characters.

"How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul."

All time favorite!

I read this story when I was 7 and have never forgotten the lessons of strength in the face of adversity, the power of positive thinking and charity when there is abundance. I love this story and passed it’s magic on to my children.
