Richenda’s father, Professor Fry, was intolerant and unsympathetic, but the girl nearly wept when she heard that she was to be sent to a Swiss school - he could hardly have devised a more awful punishment. But, after a hesitant start at the Chalet School, Richenda found her situation far from unpleasant. She made friends without difficulty and soon shed much of her self-pity before the kindness and good companionship which surrounded her. Only indignation with her learned papa remained, and that was to disappear after a train of dramatic events.
There were very major cuts in the Armada paperback.
There is also a new short story by Adrianne Fitzpatrick called On Second Thoughts
