The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place
Let's say your headmistress and her brother die of poison at Sunday dinner and you dont want your school to be closed or for you to be sent home. Not because of some pesky murderer! What else can seven proper ladies do but hide the bodies and convince neighbors all is well? An entertaining Victorian romp.
There’s a murderer on the loose—but that doesn’t stop the girls of St. Etheldreda’s from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce.
The students of St. Etheldreda’s School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home—unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbors that nothing is wrong.
Julie Berry’s The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place is a smart, hilarious Victorian romp, full of outrageous plot twists, mistaken identities, and mysterious happenings.
