Author of SAVING MISS OLIVER'S & the upcoming sequel NO IVORY TOWER

“Some are called to work in schools. Some are called to write.  Davenport is called to both.” 

– Annie Dillard

Welcome to the world of

Miss Oliver’s School for Girls

Out of a lifetime of working in independent schools, author Stephen Davenport has created a series of novels in which characters are put under stress in the intense, hermetic, emotionally charged, mission driven and politically complex world of an all-girls boarding school. The setting and the characters are fictions, but they spring from a lived experience. They are real and authentic – and therefore fascinating.
