Summary:

After a difficult term (Excitements at the Chalet School), Karen goes home to the Tiernsee for the Easter holidays, and encounters a face from the past who will change her life for ever.  Following her subsequent departure from the Chalet School, her place is taken by someone whose ideas on employment terms and conditions are very different from those in place at both the school and Freudesheim.  Gretchen, the eldest daughter of Marie and Andreas, then tells the story of her childhood and youth.  Later, at a conference at the Schloss Wertheim, attended by all the major characters from the previous drabbles, Gretchen, David Russell and Daisy and Laurie Rosomon all make life-changing decisions; and David and Gretchen's lives both then change again.  Primula Garden also decides to change her life.  Con Maynard and Ricki Fry then visit the Tiernsee, where several of the major characters from earlier drabbles are living, and the most painful episodes of the Chalet School's past are revisited.  There are also some shorter drabbles which fit into the same universe, including the reaction of the Russell-Venables family to Margot's death; and the drabbles are all listed in universe-chronological order rather than the order in which they were written.
