Older children's historical novel: In the year 1791, the Carteret family of Oakleigh Hall welcomed Madame de Courcelles, a refugee from France, as governess for Susie and the twins. Life at Oakleigh Hall was never dull and the lovable Susie played a prominent part in its happiness and the lifting of the veil of mystery cloaking their guest from France. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and protects the jacket against wear.
