Set within a girls' boarding school in the 1920s, this is the story of petty treachery and deceits which culminate in violence and the realization of change. Long light evenings, swimming and tennis, striped cotton frocks. It's summer term at Raeburn. New arrival Constance King hates her boarding school on sight, yet dreams of being accepted by the other girls. Instead, she finds a ferment of frustrated hopes mingled with excited expectations.
