The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place (Hardcover)
There's a murderer on the loose but that doesn't stop the girls of St. Etheldreda's from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce.
The students of St. Etheldreda's School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbors that nothing is wrong.
Julie Berry's "The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place" is a smart, hilarious Victorian romp, full of outrageous plot twists, mistaken identities, and mysterious happenings.
About the Author
Julie Berry has never solved a murder or attended boarding school. Her manners are decidedly improper. But she is part of a scandalous sisterhood. She's the youngest of seven children, six of whom are girls, and if they'd ever had a chance to conceal a corpse and run a school, they'd have jumped on it. Today she lives in eastern Massachusetts with her husband and their four sons and two cats.
