The Chalet School in Exile

Title: The Chalet School in Exile

Author: Elinor M. Brent-Dyer

Publisher: Girl’s Gone By Publishers

Date: 2019

Pages: 301

Format: Paperback

Series: Chalet School series number 14

Without a doubt, this was Elinor’s most important book and it could be argued that it was the most important children’s book about WW2 written at the time. It begins in the Tyrol, at the time of the Anschluss, and sees a group of girls having to flee for their lives, along with Miss Wilson, and Drs Jack and Gottfried. The book finishes in Guernsey with the first term of the started-again Chalet School. In between, there is a chapter, Hey for England! in which the exiles are in Switzerland, and was totally cut from the Armada paperback.

GGBP first published The Chalet School in Exile in 2009, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the start of WW2. As in that edition, this new edition includes the information given by Ruth Jolly on the Anschluss, as well as Peter Jolly’s helpful maps, together with Carol Allan’s short story, ‘A Fateful Day at the Sonnalpe’ which was also published in 2009. New for this edition is another short story by Carol, ‘Jack’s Secret’, which will bring tears to many people’s eyes.
