Publisher: Marion Lloyd

When her grandmother breaks her hip, and her parents travel to look after her, Flora is sent to a progressive boarding school. On the journey there she mysteriously finds herself instead in a 1930s girls’ school, where her twenty-first century behaviour and language shock and delight her new friends, and their life increasingly attracts her.

It emerges that she has been sent there for a purpose, and as she achieves that, she gradually she begins to appreciate that her relationships with others in her own time have sometimes been thoughtless and judgemental.
