Concordia Glade is a teacher. She suspects something dreadful is going to befall her four pupils, and devises a plan to spirit them away from the suspicious "private school" where they have all been living. Much to her surprise, the getaway encounters a small snag - the handsome, mysterious Ambrose Wells. Sparks immediately fly between the two of them, both romantic and confrontational, as they each attempt to pursue their own goals while trying to ignore their deepening feelings for each other.
If you like Victorian romance with headstrong women and occaisional fantasy elements, Quick is the writer to know. I found this book charming if light, and it had me laughing out loud in places - no easy feat at my least favorite time of year. Three stars (C+). Take it on a plane ride.
