Help! Love strikes the Conroy sisters! First Ruth fancies the school bus-driver, but she and Naomi soon fall for the Temporary English Teacher. Then all four sisters are bewitched by the charms of Philippe ... The delightful finale to the award-winning Exiles series.
The four Conroy sisters find themselves falling prey to what Big Grandma calls the 'family failing'. Impracticably. Desperately. Unsuitably. And usually quite hopelessly!
Ruth is the hardest hit, falling for the school bus driver, the temporary English teacher and the boy who works at the butcher shop simultaneously. Naomi shares her love for the English teacher, Rachel fancies French visitor Philippe and Phoebe is occupied spying on everybody else! And as always, all four girls seem unable to avoid hilarious situations . . .
McKay has created a boisterous, chaotic family which always makes me want to rush out and adopt three sisters. * TES *
