**This is a book I got for free, in advance through Netgalley.**

I didn't realize while I was reading this that the eponymous school was a real one, and that these three young ladies were real historical figures who all attended it in real life (although not all together.) I definitely enjoyed the historical setting, and the multiple point-of-view narration. A few things pulled me out of the story a little--occasionally when things had to be explained, or when characters stopped to really belabor a particular belief--and the ending, while exciting, felt a little rushed--but overall I found this a very enjoyable story and I'm thinking about tracking down more info about the girls themselves.
