“On a remote peninsula in Scotland sits Caldonbrae Hall, exceedingly elite girls’ boarding school for Britain’s most powerful and wealthy, plus a few others. When Rose enters this gothic castle, she has no idea what awaits her. Caldonbrae of the 1990s seems stuck firmly in the previous century, with its ancient traditions closely guarded. As Rose slowly learns the traditions and secrets of the school, she becomes more appalled and more trapped in its powerful web. As the classics teacher, Rose focuses her lessons on the women and goddesses of ancient Greece, and some of her students begin to crave these stories of strong women, and to wonder about the possibility of a life beyond that prescribed by Caldonbrae Hall. A sort of Jane Eyre meets Mean Girls, this captivating novel carries us into an eerie institution where all are imprisoned in one way or another with little hope of escape.”Nancy, Raven Book Store
