McLaine, Kathleen - Jean at St Hilary's. Pickering & Inglis, 1958 reprint. St Hilary's Girls' School is a modern red brick building on the outskirts of Sunnybay, with the downs rising behind it, and half a mile away, the chalk cliffs dropping steeply to the sea. Jean is found to be really a lovable character, but the real heroine is the pale little daughter of a medical missionary in India, and her delicate gentleness is the cloak of a very steadfast Christian character. The story is by no means lacking in incidents and action, while mischievour prnaks and miniature disasters follow each other in quick sucession. (flap). 168pp plus 1 plate, cream cloth, brown blocking, hardback. Illustrated with a three-colour frontispiece. Prize-plate on front-free endpaper; very slight edge-foxing; very slight page-edge browning; very good; complete with good (Loss to head of spine; edge-wear/chips/tears; slightly sunned spine; price-cut) wrapper.
