    Story

    This story of a little girl, born in India but placed at a boarding school in London at age 7 for a traditional English education, is a classic. It is an easy read and I found it just as engrossing at age 50 as I did when I was 10 years old. The narration is beautifully done and Virginia Leishman, in accent and delivery, frequently reminds one of Audrey Hepburn's voice. It is a another little gem in audible's library.

    If you have seen the Shirley Temple version of this book, PLEASE read the book. As per usual for Hollywood, in the movie the ending is very different, the plot is somewhat changed and characters have been added and/or transformed. If you haven't seen the film, it is worthwhile as well, but very much a different form of entertainment. (The delightful Arthur Treacher co-stars).
