Summary:

A Ruritanian romance without the romance! A royal relative of Elisaveta's turns up in the Tiern valley in disguise, working as a sculptress. On being invited to join the Chalet School staff and teach some art, she strikes up a friendship with Nell Wilson and, even after her royal background is revealed, continues to work with the girls and mistresses who have become her friends - until disaster forces her back to her country, and to the very burden of duty she has run to Austria to escape.

How lovely! I was rather worried that people would be bored with me for introducing Tristan to the mix, but I did not expect such a rapturous welcome for him!

Ok, so...this has clearly ended up as T&M universe. Sorry about that - but as it’s T&M universe, I believe there is one character we are currently missing…and I don't think I can get on without her!
