Description : Raised in India by her affluent and adoring father, Captain Ralph Crewe, Sara was sent to London to be educated at ‘Miss Minchin's Seminary for Young Ladies’ at the age of seven.

Suddenly penniless, Miss Minchin banishes Sara to the garret to work as a servant alongside Becky, the seminary’s young scullery maid. Though starved and abused, Sara uses imagination and friendship - with Becky, Ermengarde, and Lottie - to make the best of her change in situation and fortunes. However, hope is on the horizon, in the guise of a monkey and his mysterious owner who lives next door… 3 Acts; Cast - 5 male, 3 female, 1 boy, and 14 girls; Setting - 1902, London

Description : The eponymous heroine of Frances Hodgson Burnett's Sara Crewe (1888) is a seven-year-old girl. She is the daughter of a wealthy tradesman who has left her at Miss Minchin's boarding school while being engaged in his trade in the Indian subcontinent. Thanks to the financial status of her father, the school's headmistress Miss Minchin treats Sara like a princess. This special treatment does not spoil the little child, though. On the contrary, Sara develops the moral qualities of a noble lady, showing signs of generosity and modesty among her school peers. Nonetheless, things turn completely upside down when she receives news about the death of her father and the theft of his great fortunes. Miss Minchin's true face is now unveiled as she decides to make of Sara her own servant and deprives her of all her previous advantages. Sara has to endure hunger, cold and the wickedness of some of her schoolmates. After episodes of psychological and physical suffering through which Sara shows great patience and confidence in her values, it turns out that her father's fortunes have not been stolen. Her father's friend, Mr. Carrisford, appears to inform her that he has been looking for her to hand her the money that has even doubled since her father's death.

Description : Jane Eyre's American Daughters is about the influence of Charlotte Bronte's romance on North American writers, including Susan Warner, Louisa May Alcott, Martha Finley, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Kate Douglas Wiggin, Jean Webster, Eleanor Porter, and L M Montgomery. John Seelye demonstrates that the reception of Bronte's Gothic romance in America was filtered through Elizabeth Gaskell's biography of the author, published shortly after her friend's death in 1855. A sentimental classic in its day, Gaskell's book promoted an image of Charlotte as a long-suffering creative genius with high moral standards. Her biography necessarily overlooked Bronte's obsessive love for her Belgian professor. Constantin Heger, an older and married man. Though Heger did not return Charlotte's affection, he was the model for the lovers in Bronte's novels, including the passionate, adulterous Edward Rochester, who inspired censorious reviews questioning the moral character of the author when Jane Eyre was published in 1847, a reputation that Gaskell's biography successfully countered.
