Winner of the 1938 Governor General’s Literary Award For Fiction. The novel is set in a girls’ boarding school in Switzerland in 1936 over a three day period. What makes this novel extraordinary is not just the author’s insights into the behaviour of the girls, but for her timely insights into the dark clouds of war and hatred gathering over all of Europe at the time.
