Knowledge of the article
We use the article “the” before a specific noun and “a/an” before a noun that refers to a general, meaning “one”.
Here “little girl” has been specifically identified by the clause (he had known) should use “the”, and “woman” indicates a woman should use “a”.
She is no longer the little girl he used to know, but she is not a woman yet.
