A Little Princess Finds Her Voice by Holly Webb is a 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.
Holly Webb has taken the characters from a classic and given them a new lease of life. Lottie’s political awakening is a slow and honest journey. She starts to see things in a different light, and decides to follow her heart and find out more about the suffragette movement. In The Princess and the Suffragette we find out more about Lottie’s story , about the social atmosphere she is growing up in, about the restrictions on her life in Miss Minchin’s school.
I throughly enjoy this sequel to A Little Princess. Holly Webb’s style of writing is different from Burnett’s but I think she did a great job of taking the reader on a new adventure with the same characters we have come to love.
I received an e-ARC from SOURCEBOOKS Jabberwocky via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
