Best days of your life?

Trixie is standing in the corridor in her dressing gown on her first night at St Hilda's Convent Boarding School. Miserably homesick, she decides to sneak outside instead of returning to her dormitory... Prepare to meet the priest who isn't all he seems, a young novice who specialises in fake accents, an evil Australian cousin, a flock of hare-brained girls and a diminutive nun who can scarcely be seen over the steering wheel of the Mini she loves to drive at breakneck speed.
Follow Trixie's progress through her first term as she has a great adventure and adjusts to the bonkers life that is an English country boarding school in the seventies.

For boarding school survivors everywhere...
Depending on your own life experience, you will either regard the details of life at St Hilda's as just the way it was, or a glimpse into some sort of dystopian nightmare. Boarding school survivors will perhaps nod their heads and give a wry smile as they remember the two baths a week rule and being punished for running in the corridor, or speaking your mind - whereas those who were fortunate enough to have a 'normal' upbringing will gasp at the descriptions of the inedible food and supervised Sunday letter writing sessions when a nun wrote the news you were 'allowed' to include in your letter home on the board.

This novel has been previously published by D C Thomson in a shorter edited version as A Mystery At St Hilda's (People's Friend Pocket Novel Number 942 June 2021).
