Great story. Very well presented.
The story of a rich Victorian child, brought to boarding school in England from India by her father after the death of her mother, is a little sentimental by modern standards, but the lessons of triumphing over hardship, and integrity rewarded are still relevant today. The book is saved from mawkishness by the sad, but realistic, death of her father, unlike the totally infuriating changes made in the American film version of this story.
Stick with the written version - it is a great deal more rewarding. Great read.
Only criticism, is the author has a similar plot in her other books such as The Secret Garden, hence 4 stars, not 5.
A classic for all girls to read. I suggest you read the book first and then watch the film.
