“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.
