Read full description of the books:
When reading Olive Higgins Prouty's "Now Voyager" last year, I first learned of Sara Crewe. “I’ll enlighten you then. Did you ever read a book when you were a child called Sara Crewe?” “I don’t think so, but the name sounds familiar.” “Well, Sara Crewe,” she began, picking her words slowly the better to express her self-contempt, “was a poor, pathetic creature who had no friends, and only a few ugly clothes. She lived a dreary existence on a bare garret until a nice, rich, old gentleman came along one day, and took pity on the poor thing.”
I placed the book on my "to read" list not knowing that I had seen bits and pieces of Shirley Temple's Little Princess movie based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's story. This last weekend I watched the whole movie and saw it was based on her novel. Finding out that this was the short story that was expanded into the book "The Little Princess", I decided to read this first and than the book. The long and short is described in Prouty's book and not wanting to say more but it was different than the movie yet the same in the sense. It was a wonderful read and this Kindle edition had no errors and very easy to read as any Kindle. When I saw the Kindle description, I was not sure if this was going to be photocopied, which it was not. The last part of the Kindle from 66% on had book advertisements from 1891 or the time of this publishing. I will come back and comment after reading the book.
After reading "A Little Princess" I see how well Frances Hodgson Burnett had stayed true to this novelette and how the movie differed. See my review of " A Little Princess ", if interested.

Read information about the authorFrances Eliza Hodgson was the daughter of ironmonger Edwin Hodgson, who died three years after her birth, and his wife Eliza Boond. She was educated at The Select Seminary for Young Ladies and Gentleman until the age of fifteen, at which point the family ironmongery, then being run by her mother, failed, and the family emigrated to Knoxville, Tennessee. Here Hodgson began to write, in order to supplement the family income, assuming full responsibility for the family upon the death of her mother, in 1870. In 1872 she married Dr. Swan Burnett, with whom she had two sons, Lionel and Vivian. The marriage was dissolved in 1898. In 1900 Burnett married actor Stephen Townsend until 1902 when they got divorced. Following her great success as a novelist, playwright, and children's author, Burnett maintained homes in both England and America, traveling back and forth quite frequently. She died in her Long Island, New York home, in 1924.
Primarily remembered today for her trio of classic children's novels - Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911) - Burnett was also a popular adult novelist, in her own day, publishing romantic stories such as The Making of a Marchioness (1901) for older readers.
