Amazing book!!!!! Not only is it gorgeous, but it also hold an absolutely stunning story. I loved it soo much. Another good book by Frances Hodgson Burnett is A Little Princess, which is also offered in the Barnes & Noble leatherbound collection. Both stories focus on amazing stories of girls in unique situations and who overcome their circumstances to become better people. I would recommend for anyone at any age.
