It is the year 1674. When thirteen-year-old Lady Katherine sailed away from her home in the Caribbean for school in London, she didn’t expect a brutal pirate attack. Nor did she anticipate ridicule and exclusion by her peers, or harsh punishment by the headmistress and the princess House Assistant in Emerald House.

Lady Katherine is quite a character! She breaks the mold of young noblewoman on the first page. She is spunky and inventive, always looking for adventure. From taking part in a bucket brigade to solving a murder mystery, there is never a dull moment. Put her in a chilly haunted castle and you can imagine what will happen. This novel is delightful and fun for all ages. I would gladly recommend it to any young person I know. Katherine is strong, yet respectful most of the time. The descriptions of ...more

Dennis Berry has written a delightful historical fiction book for all ages. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. The heroine, Lady Katherine, proves to be a handful to her chaperone, and a headache to her new school headmistress when she arrives in London. Her enthusiasm is dampened by rigid rules, a chilly castle, and the dour headmistress who shows favoritism to a princess.

I found myself searching for a sequel to this book, but I guess I'll have to wait a bit for it to be written. I h

I really enjoyed this book. Lady Katherine is not your typical 13 year old "Lady". She has an adventurous streak that tends to get her in a bit of trouble. It is a historical fiction book that successfully weaves together pirates, ghosts and life in the Caribbean and a London boarding school in 1674.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
