From the cover: “With delightful humour, a light and affectionate touch, and an unerring — and unmawkish — sense of pathos and nostalgia (for many of the schools she mentions, as well as their songs, have disappeared, and others are threatened), Celia Haddon recaptures the world of girls’ education over a hundred years and more, reflected in the lines they sang.”
