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. Simultaneous.

Publishers Description
Sara Crewe is a student at Miss Minchin's fancy boarding school. She has the very best of everything. But when her rich father dies, she's left without a penny. Now Sara lives in the school's cold attic and works for crusts of bread. With some help from a secret friend and a touch of magic, Sara's world is about to change in ways she never dreamed. An adaptation of the classic novel that's just right for young readers!
Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born and grew up in Manchester, but after her father's death she emigrated with her mother to Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1865. Five years later her mother died and – like many other women of her time – she began writing short stories for popular magazines to support her family. Her first novel, That Lass o' Lowrie's (1877), brought her instant fame on both sides of the Atlantic.

She married in 1873, and in 1886 her popular children's serial Little Lord Fauntleroy was published to instant success. Mrs. Burnett wrote many other novels, for both children and adults, as well as plays and short stories, but she is best remembered for the classic children's novels The Secret Garden (1911) and A Little Princess (1905).

She became an American citizen in 1905, though she travelled frequently to Europe. She died at her home on Long Island a few weeks before her seventy-fifth birthday.

More About Frances Hodgson Burnett & Cathy East Dubowski

Frances Hodgson Burnett Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an English-American playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, near Manchester, England. After her father died in 1852, the family eventually fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There, Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died and in 1872 she married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor after which they lived in Paris for two years where their two sons were born before returning to the US to live in Washington D.C. There she began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowries), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.

Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and bought a home there in the 1890s where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1892, which caused a relapse of the depression she struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898 and married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced him in 1902. Towards the end of her life she settled in Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery, on Long Island.

In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Manchester. Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in 1849 and died in 1924.
