CS No 12
Jo has left school, but she comes to pay a visit the day the girls go back for the autumn term, and plans to stay for one night. But measles up at Die Rosen put paid to that – she cannot go home. In the end, she stays for the whole term, writing her first book, discovering and coaching new girl Polly Heriot, and taking over classes when staff are ill. The book ends with a Christmas Play which brings tears to many people’s eyes.
The Armada paperback had minor, frequent, cuts.
