| Q the Professor 4/1/13 . chapter 17
Well-written, gentle, heartwarming, and surprisingly effective.
The title, in particular, is a very felicitous choice.
The Biblical themes are well chosen, too, and are an added plus for the self-professed "Biblical geek" that I am.
And the updated versions of Lottie and Mr. Carrisford are particularly sweet. I've taken the liberty of adding the story here ( /FanficRecs/ALittlePrincess), in the interests of wider circulation. Keep up the good work!

I really liked your story!
| Quentin 316 3/6/11 . chapter 17
Not really a huge fan of fanfic, but this was a good story! After overcoming my initial incredulity at meeting Sara grown up (she's still fixed at 9-13 in my mind), this one worked very well. It has a lot of touches in common with the anime adaptation - did you use it as one of your sources? And Lottie was a riot. Good work!

wow this story is amazing! I love how through you didn't imitata the writing style (god help anyone that does) you stayed true to the book! Amazing!
| Katamabob 11/7/10 . chapter 17
It was lovely! A fabulous 'what if' story. Great imagination, great writing and true narrative talent. Very nice. Loved Henry, and I loved Becky finally standing up to Miss Minchin. Maria was also fun, and I love how Lottie's grown ;)
Sweet and wonderful, and the language of the dialogue is impressively similar to the book's.

hi, i really like your story i think its good. the whole; what if sara wasn't saved from the seminary is something i have thought over myself. I just wanted to let you know that 'A little princess' can also be found in books, and seeing that your story is based more on the books then the movie you might want to put it up there as well.

I just finished reading the whole thing.
THIS IS SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO GOOD!
Now I'm going to read all of your other stories!
| Sapphire Warrioress 2/25/10 . chapter 17
A great lighthearted tale.
Although things seemed a little rushed as far as the romance between Henry and Sara and the pace of the story went overall it was a fun and delightful read.
I loved Lottie's diversion and how Miss Minchin was humiliated, and would love to see you write more for this category.
Maybe a story with Miss Amelia deciding to act and putting the pieces together about who is living nextdoor and his search for Captain Crewe's daughter?
As you said, compared to your LOTR stories the writing here isn't as developed, but your plot was intriguing and I like how you wrote believable realistic futures for all of Sara's friends.
Thanks for sharing this tale and good luck with future stories.

I never thought to look for A Little Princess fanfiction before, and found this one by accident. It was a fun read and makes me want to re-read the book!
| Cristalake 1/26/09 . chapter 17
It was sweet. I love the dialect.
| PrincessAlica 12/24/08 . chapter 1
I love Little Princess!
You are doing a great job and I look forward to readig the rest of what you have done!
| Holly 12/18/08 . chapter 17
Well, what can I say? A Little Princess is my all-time favourite book and this has just shown me that there are writers out there who can capture Burnett's wonderful narrative and emotion, and create something which I am sure Burnett herself would have been proud of. You have captured Sara appropriately as Burnett does in the novel, without making her seem to snobby or conceited. I also love the 1986 television adaptation of the novel (I think the 1995 version was a bit O.T.T as they picked a pretty golden-haired beauty to play Sara and Sara's dad magically recovers from amnesia at the sight of her.) The 1986 version follows the plot of the novel adding a few new characters such as Henrietta who add humour to the piece. Sorry to ramble on but I think this is definitely worth 5 stars and I would love to see the original Sara in the 1986 version (Amelia Shankley) in a sequel film following your own plot! Maybe sometime in the future...
Good Luck and Well done!
