KIRKUS REVIEW

To a long line of pleasant stories, this latest and 29th adds the romance of head- mistress Charlotte Fairlic whose problems at Saint Elizabeth, an English girls' school, are complicated by a growing loneliness and a love for a man she feels she may not accept. The hatred and jealousy of Miss Pinkerton, the senior mathematics instructor, culminates in her resignation; the divorce between the parents of Tessa MacRynne brings an invitation to the island, Targ, where the MacRynne and peaceful Scottish ways are the answer Chariotte has sought. The nearly successful suicide of a young boy, the fear of threatening Tessa's security and the refusal of another suitor condemn Charlotte to her schoolroom walls until Tessa, with young imperiousness, breaks down adult obstacles. The nice, not nauseating, school of fiction at its most agreeable.
