Description


The fate of the beloved school is hanging in the balance. . .

"From the very first paragraphs, Saving Miss Oliver's is an engaging read and is very highly recommended to all general fiction readers."
--Midwest Book Review

"There are moments here that indicate that Davenport, who, as his bio notes, 'had a long career in education, ' was probably an excellent teacher, like a scene in which Francis explicates a Robert Frost poem with his class, and there are some wonderful students, like the head of the school newspaper who is conducting research about the sex lives of students. . . A book for anyone who's wondered about the inner workings and worries of a school administration."
--Kirkus Reviews

The prestigious boarding school Miss Oliver's School for Girls is on the cusp of going under. The trustees just fired the headmistress of the last thirty-five years, and the alumnae and students are angry and determined to hate her successor, the new--and male--head Fred Kindler. If only he can gain the support of the legendary senior teacher Francis Plummer, then Fred might have a fighting chance to save the school; but no one except Francis's wife and the school librarian, Peggy, is willing to give Fred a chance.

With Fred's career on the line and the Plummers' marriage at stake, will Miss Oliver's survive to be the school it once was?
