Seven Sisters at Queen Anne's
Seven Sisters at Queen Anne's | Evelyn Smith
1 post | 1 read | 3 to read
Pamela, Gwen, Sylvie, Tony, Septima, Phyllida and Gerry-the "long family of Shortt"-arrive at Queen Anne's for their first ever term at boarding school after their governess leaves them to get married. They aren't the ordinary type of school nuisance; they haven't any desire to break rules for the sake of breaking them, or to be objectionable to mistresses and prefects just because they are in authority. But they have their own ways, which are not school ways ... Seven Sisters at Queen Anne's is the first book in the Queen Anne's series and displays to the full Evelyn Smith's talent for lively characterisation and quirky situations.

And now for a vintage children‘s story (about seven sisters suddenly thrust into boarding school when their governess has the audacity to marry).

I‘m pairing it with a bit of jasmine tea in the pretty cup and saucer that @ShelleyBooksie sent to me for the #FallingForFallSwap. 😘😘

BiblioLitten Hi Leah! I might be hitting Calgary next month. Any bookstore recommendations? 2mo
LeahBergen @BiblioLitten Hi!! Let‘s see… for small independents I like Shelf Life, Owl‘s Nest, and Pages in Kensington (and Kensington is a fun neighbourhood of shops, restaurants, etc.). Our big used bookstore is called Fair‘s Fair with two locations. The Inglewood location is a really fun shopping area, too. Oh! And there‘s a nice independent one near it, too, called The Next Page. 👍 2mo
BiblioLitten Thank you for the recommendations! I hope to check out a few💕 2mo
Centique That sounds fabulous. I expect that many “scrapes” ensue and hopefully tea and cakes after someone wins a race at sports day. 😁 2mo
rubyslippersreads Gorgeous cover! 2mo
LeahBergen @Centique The tea and cakes came after winning a big tennis match for their school. 😆 2mo
Centique @LeahBergen that is perfect! 2mo
