A little princess. E-book. Formato EPUB

Un ebook di  Frances Hodgson Burnett  edito da Narcissus.me, 2016

Captain Crewe, a wealthy young English widower, enrolls his seven-year-old daughter Sara, who has been living in India, at Miss Minchin's boarding school for girls in London, in order to prepare her for a future life in society. Crewe dotes on his daughter, ordering and paying for her special treatment at the school, such as her own room fitted with extra luxuries, her own maid, and her own carriage for rides. The Headmistress, Miss Minchin, is secretly jealous and dislikes Sara, but hides her true feelings and publicly fawns over Sara because her father is so rich. Despite her special status, Sara does not act snobbish and instead is quiet, well-mannered and kind, going out of her way to befriend Ermengarde, the school dunce; Lottie, a four-year-old student prone to temper tantrums; and Becky, the lowly scullery maid. Sara gains the reputation of being like a "princess", and embraces it by trying to behave as a kind and magnanimous princess would in all situations. Four years later, Sara's birthday is celebrated at Miss Minchin's with a lavish party, attended by all her schoolmates. Just as it ends, Miss Minchin learns of Captain Crewe's unfortunate demise after losing his entire fortune through a bad investment in his friend's diamond mines. Sara is left a pauper, and Miss Minchin is left with sizable unpaid bills for Sara's school fees and luxuries, including her birthday party. In a rage, Miss Minchin takes away all of Sara's possessions except for some old frocks and one doll; makes her live in a cold, poorly furnished attic; and forces her to earn her keep by working as an errand girl and general drudge.
