The Scandolous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place

25 Sep

That title is a little incongruous for the very Victorian feel of the story. It conjures up crazy sexual behavior, especially with the “prickwillow”…and yet, this book is not that at all. It is a charming, quirky story of girls in a boarding school in the Victorian era, who decide to run the school themselves when their mean headmistress and her unpleasant brother are suddenly poisoned by persons unknown. Each of the girls has her own special personality, and they come together as an unlikely band of heroes to try to determine the murderer, and avoid being sent home.  They find in each other the “sisters” they wish they had.  Sort of a Miss Marple tone – likeable, pleasant and not demanding.
