The story is about a young girl named Sara, who is the apple of her father's eye. He is stationed in India and when she comes of age, he wants to have her educated and 'finished'. He sends her to a boarding school in England and subsequently dies, leaving her an orphan. She is reduced to a servant in the same boarding house but she still keeps her hopeful outlook towards her fellow creatures. Little does she know her father's best friend is looking for her, ready to bestow wealth and a home on her--if only he could find her. In a true Victorian twist of fate, Sara is eventually rescued and finds a home with a loving benefactor.
Sara is an odd, eccentric girl who is as optimistic as Pollyanna (another BFF from my childhood) but Sara does have a bit of a temper as well.
This book was a delight and pleasure and it is easy to see why it is a classic for any age.
