Cultures clash to disastrous effect in this tale from Frances Hodgson Burnett, acclaimed author of titles such as Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden. An American family living in Paris strives to make a splash among the upper crust of their adopted country. The story is told from the perspective of a tutor hired to instruct their lovely young daughter, Esmeralda, who is fascinated by his dealings with this new breed of social climbers.
