Cilia of Chiltern's Edge

Title: Cilia of Chiltern’s Edge

Author: Mabel Esther Allan

Publisher: Girl’s Gone By Publishers

Date: 2019

Pages: 224

Format: Paperback

When ten-year-old Cilia Pilgrim’s father is sent to Paris by his firm, the decision is made to send her to Chilterns’ Edge School, in Buckinghamshire, where her neighbour, Zena Dacre, is a pupil. On the way to school, Cilia meets Sandra – who is also going to school – but to a rival, High Beeches. How Cilia and Sandra enjoy (or not) their first term, and how the feud comes to an end makes for exciting reading.

One of the best things about this book is the descriptions of the Chiltern countryside. Mabel knew it well and loved it, and this really comes through. So much has changed now, but in those days it was truly idyllic.

GGBP have included one of Mabel’s short stories, ‘Laura’s Dull Life’ with Cilia of Chilterns’ Edge
