Sara Crewe - Frances Hodgson Burnett

Really loved this. It's novella size, and more fairy-tale than realism in style though i'm not sure that was entirely the author's intent. There are a few rough spots, perhaps from dated perspectives -- for instance referring to Lascar as a slave, actually the whole Lascar character, but all together this is really an emotional sort of book with heart.

I'd say more but that would spoil the story, go ahead and find this for yourself.

You probably already know, but if not, Frances Hodgson Burnett is known for her book The Secret Garden. Sara Crewe has some prominent autobiographical connections.
