2003 Paperback Cover The Chalet School, after a dozen years' flourishing existence, is stricken by the war. The invasion of Austria brings the School under the Nazi overlords, the pupils are scattered and soon it becomes impossible to work in such surroundings. Eventually those who are left take flight to the Channel Islands, where the School is established temporarily
Within the framework of the story there occur even more than the usual number of escapes and adventures, involving the Gestapo, spies, U-boats, and aeroplanes. Miss Brent-Dyer writes with rare knowledge of the mentality of Continental people in this the most thrilling of all her stories.
The war apart, The Chalet School in Exile resounds with an event of the very greatest importance for the School's history. Of course, Jo is concerned in this - but more must not be said here. - 1941 Advertisements & 2003 Girls Gone By Publishing
