Adeline Yen Mah

A Little Princess
  • A Little Princess

  • Including an introduction from writer and feminist activist Scarlett Curtis, curator of Sunday Times Bestseller Feminists Don't Wear Pink.

    When wealthy Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school in London, she is determined to settle in and make friends.

    Charismatic and popular, with a big heart and a love of storytelling, she seems to be succeeding.

    Her father always said she was a Little Princess, and she knows exactly what it means to be a princess: to be kind, understanding and polite.

    That is, until tragedy strikes. Sara must fight harder than she thought possible to remain both strong and kind in the most difficult of circumstances.

    The Sisterhood collection celebrates the best-loved classics, written by some of the best female authors in history for International Women's Day. Read the rest of the collection:

    The Railway Children
    Little Women
    Heidi
    Pride and Prejudice
    Anne of the Green Gables

Thought to bring bad luck because her mother died giving birth to her, Adeline Yen Mah was discriminated against by her family all her life. Falling Leaves is both the moving story of how she survived that rejection and an enthralling saga of a Chinese family, from the time of the foreign concessions to the rise of Communist China and the commercial boom of Hong Kong.
