It is 1913 nine years after the end of A Little Princess saw Sara Crewe escape Miss Minchin's orphanageLottie the smallest girl from the original story learns about the Suffraget. First before I get all nitpicky about what I didn't like about this book I do have to say I loved the idea of this that a girl from this time from Miss Minchin’s would get involved in the Suffragist movement I do love the historical events that are covered in this book For that alone this book might get youth interested in the history of the movementI love how the Coronation March is what introduced Lottie and that she struggled on trying to get and information about it despite being in the boarding school which she couldn't leave I love that they saw the martyrdom at the Derby where Emily Davison walked in front of the king's horse It is very cool to see how these characters react to these events which must have seemed very strange to themBut having said all this although it has the characters of A Little Princess including from time to time Sarah it does not read with the same language as the originalI love the Little Princess I re read it every few years I have even attempted to write a seuel myself But it is tough writing in the original style so that you can go from the original to the new book and this book suffers from that problem It isn't written in the same style of the original rather it is written in a modern style with modern vernacular It is a little jarring Part of it could also be the American translation as I am going to assume that Lottie refers to her mother as Mum rather than Mom as she does in the American version of this book As a note I hate it when publishers feel they have to do thatThe story is about Lottie several years later from when the author assumes the original story took place Since A Little Princess was published in 1905 the events in this book apparently are taking place in 1911 although the original short story was published in 1888 I only bring this part up because the first version was written under ueen Victoria but was published in Edwardian timesSo although I would recommend this for completists for people who want to read all variations that have been done to this story I would not recommend it to people who are purists that want to have the original and no otherThanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review

Summary The Princess and the Suffragette

The Princess and the SuffragetteTe movement from Sara who returns to visit from time to time Soon Lottie finds herself sneaking out of the orphanage to attend a demonstration in defiance of her cold distant fat. The Princess and the Suffragette is a really good continuation novel to Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess I enjoyed having an older Lottie as the central character and how Sara was there but in the background It weaves the suffragette movement as witnessed by Lottie which I thought was done in a great way
