Oh my goodness I think you're a really talented writer! Your sumptuously rich imagery was every bit as good as that in the film, I agree with you, in itself the movie is good because of the lovely visuals and the talents of the main actress, but the story only has a minor resemblance to the book, which I too enjoy more by the way. I like the 1986 film BBC version because it matches with the book closely. Anyways my favorite of all your delicious imagery moments were those involving Ram Dass, the honeyed incense and so forth had me melting all over the place, I'm so in love with him you know, I'm more in love with book Ram Dass, but that's only because he has more scenes than this movie's Ram Dass does, but wow, you do him justice, I think a lot of writers are afraid to do so actually. Thank you for this story, it made my day.

You are an AMAZING WRITER, and I wholeheartedly agree with you that no movie adaptation will live up to Ms. H-B's novel. But, evenso, this novelization was truly brilliant.

You wrote those scenes wonderfully! I love how you used Edwardian descriptions instead of modern ones! i look forward to future stories like this from you and hope that you write many more under the category A Little Princess.

Amazing! This is my favourite film/book of all time and I would have been majorly annoyed if you hadn't done this justice but you have! I would read this again and again and again! You captured the moment perfectly it's just how I remembered it! Lots of love Hari's girlfriend xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I read A Little Princess once when I was ten, one of the few books that I couldn't put down when I was a child-until Patricia C. Wrede's Enchanted Forest series turned me a fanatic of fantasy books-and that's saying something since I had suffered a bad case of ADHD before hitting teen years. I remember looking longingly at the back cover while caressing it after being finished.
So in spite not remembering much of the story itself I remember that afterglow and so had to read what you wrote.
I love all your work. I don't review them that often because frankly I'm daunted by you. I feel Like Taran before Annlaw, and I'm afraid anything I say about your stories would be insignificant, lol.
But I'll try my best-and quick, my little niece keeps coming in my room nagging to take her bike riding. Something I've always loved about your writing is how it forces me to read carefully and respond to every meaningful phrase and metaphor.
I love how you dig into the soldier's instincts here, as if you were one yourself. The beauty of fantasy, experiencing what you might never know in reality. I love all the metaphors you use to describe his emotions warring against his amnesia; the key without a lock, the child's wailing outside in the storm after being awoken from hearing childish laughter, feeling guilty of locking out the sound. Is that because his heart remembers his parental instincts?
Even having forgotten a lot of the story, and I probably haven't gotten the point of it having been ten and not very bright then, I can still say this is one of the loveliest and enjoyable fics I've read on this site.

This was beautifully written. The scene is just as I remember it from the movie. Your word choices are perfect and the rhythm drives the story to the reunion. You can feel his frustration, confusion, and sudden realization. I particularly loved the description of Sara's thoughts in the attic. This was an excellent story and will come in very handy when I want to watch the movie but don't have time. :)
My favorite lines:
"She must, must, must make him see her, make him know her, because if Papa is not Papa then she is not Sara and there is no princess, no Sara, no nothing, anymore, forever."
"It is anger that compels her to beat uselessly against the door of the attic, anger that prods her to continually protest her innocence, anger that finally turns her, seething, from the unmoved finality of a locked door. It is her anger that keeps her strong, and her fear that wills her to escape."

Very well done, loved the novelization of this scene from the movie!

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Your words simply flow like a river, and I was struck by how you so accurately verbalized the feelings and events during my favorite scene in this lovely film. This scene always succeeds in making me cry, and you did a gorgeous job with it. Thank you!

"An excuse to play with words" - well, you play with words very well! I loved this! It's also my favorite scene in the movie... I've seen it a million times and still cry each time... your words really captured it... love, love, love!
