Jan Hurst-Nicholsonabout this book: When a former US naval officer agrees to restore discipline in a prestigious British school he finds the aggrieved female teachers are his biggest challenge.
The girls at St Mary's Academy in northern England are becoming unruly. A quick fix is needed and the governing body controversially appoints Adam Wild as the new head teacher, a handsome former US naval officer and widower with a tragic past.
The all-female staff resent his arrogant male presence upsetting their group dynamics, and he finds his authority undermined by fiercely ambitious and popular teacher Jenna Murray, who feels he has stolen the position that should have been hers. His new strict rules do not go down well with sullen teenage girls, and resentment festers as they plot their revenge.
But as his firm, self-assured influence takes hold in the emotionally charged atmosphere, the dark secrets, scandals and forgotten dreams of the teachers of St Mary’s present fresh challenges for Adam as he becomes the catalyst that changes their lives in ways they could never imagine ...
