This book takes place in England during WWI. It is the story of two friends who go to boarding school together, the choices they make, and how those choices affect both their lives. Philippa Carr is one of my favorite authors since I was a young girl, and I am rereading her books just for the pleasure of it.

I read this book a long time ago. It has several elements similar to my favorite book of Holt, The India Fan; but this book is not as good as the other one. I read it only once, and that is something, because most of Victorias books I have read it at least twice. Actually, I am not a big fan of Jean Plaidy or Philippa, meaning I prefer Holts style of writing. ...more

  • The Spring of the Tiger
Eleanor Alice Burford, Mrs. George Percival Hibbert was a British author of about 200 historical novels, most of them under the pen name Jean Plaidy which had sold 14 million copies by the time of her death. She chose to use various names because of the differences in subject matter between her books; the best-known, apart from Plaidy, are Victoria Holt (56 million) and Philippa Carr (3 million). ...more
