This is the story of a British girl named Sara born in India to a very rich man named Ralph Crew, who was a captain in the army in the early 19th century. He sent his daughter to England to study. Sara is treated like a princess in the boarding school. When Captain Crew passes away in India Sara is left to the mercy of the greedy headmistress, who starts treating her as a servant and forces her to help in the kitchen and sleep in the attic. Most of the nights she has nothing to eat and no one to talk to. A man moves next door and Sara talks to him; he turns out to be her father's friend and business partner. He was also searching for Sara, so, he becomes Sara's guardian. Sara has a lovely heart and a divine power of imagination that allows her to survive through hardships and humiliation. Sara is a princess at heart. --Submitted by Satwinder
