Synopsis from B&N: Sara Crewe, a pupil at Miss Minchin's London school, is left in poverty when her father dies, but is later rescued by a mysterious benefactor.
I love Sarah. Frances Hodgson Burnett paints her as such a likable, precocious child. You can’t help but fall in love with her and feel for her.
The book is full of wonderful descriptions of London and its fog; the opulence and the poverty.
This story is definitely staying on the “keep” shelf. Now if I could just get either of my girls to be interested in reading it.
