One very special boy weaves some magic in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s sentimental favorite. When young Cedric Errol learns that he is actually a British lord and heir to an estate, his life is transformed. He leaves Boston for Dorincourt Castle to live with his uncle, the Earl—a tyrant who’s loathed by one and all. Will Cedric succeed in melting his cold, cruel uncle’s heart?
Cedric Errol is a poor boy living in New York City during the late 1800's. Devoted to his American mother, who has never been recognized by her aristocratic British father-in-law, Cedric Fauntleroy is summoned to England to assume the mantle of future Lord of the manor.
Little Lord Fauntleroy is a sentimental children’s novel by American (English-born) author Frances Hodgson Burnett, published in St. Nicholas Magazine in 1885.
It was a runaway hit for the magazine and was separately published in 1886. The book was a commercial success for its author.
