A Narrow Door

by Joanne Harris

Rebecca Buckfast is headmistress of St. Oswald’s, an old elite boarding school. Getting that position was not easy and Rebecca has to be cunning to maintain her authority. Roy Straitley is a classics teacher whose life has become St. Oswald’s. The two have an uneasy relationship that must be navigated delicately by both. The book is signature Harris containing murder, intrigue, twists, turns and clever, often darkly humourous, dialogue. What’s not to love?
