Here’s something that has been nagging at me for the past several years. I am trying to look for a book that I’ve read as a child, but have completely forgotten the title, author, or in generally, any specific information that can help me search the book in Amazon or Google.
So, here is everything I remember about This Book:
The story is of a rich little girl who’s father is either away on business trip (likely) or kidnapped (less likely) or gone for an extended length of time for whatever reason.
The girl (I want to say her age is around… 10? Not a teenager, that’s for sure) lives in a huge mansion in a semi-rural area (there were descriptions of forests and wolves). The governess (or whoever the dad left in charge) converted the mansion into a boarding school for girls without his permission and proceeded to act in a horrid manner towards the little rich girl. The girl was sent to a dungeon (basement?) underneath the mansion, where she made friends with a servant girl.
Eventually, the dad (I think) came back and discovered the mess. The little girl was rescued. It was generally a happy ending.
There was a description in the book that the little rich girl had warm milk with wine to help her sleep.
I’m almost 100% sure that the book is not The Little Princess.
Oh, and just because the above was NOT hard enough, I read this book in another language (which means it was translated, which means that it might not even be written originally in English – although I strongly suspect it is), and I can’t remember the title nor the publishing date. I read it in elementary school… so it must’ve been at almost 15 years ago, maybe longer.
