Summary:

When part of the Chalet School fails to escape from Guernsey on time, members of the French Resistance help them to disguise the fact that it is a British School. But of course there is a price to be paid, by way of hiding British airmen, working in Cafe Rene and getting involved in ridiculous plots to hide Van Klomp's painting...

Thank you, Elle! I always giggle at your alcoholic Nell. Especially enjoyed the brownies and the fake currency...and definitely keen for more if you are so inclined...

Possibly my Nell is a little predictable...  but thanks for the comment!

Poor old Madge, she must be rather confused. I suppose she really needs to sit down with them and talk about it, but that would be rather excruciatingly embarrassing for her to start with. However, I am confident that she will make a wise decision.

Thanks, Tom!

Why do I feel like I've known these people all my life? I only started reading this story yesterday! They're so real, and friendly and warm...

Thanks, shesings!

Aww, I like how they have Robin and Daisy to make up their family since they don't have children...although I suspect the tiredness is less to do with illness and more to do with something else. And the three books on the go is just the same in my house...except it's more like sixteen...

Thanks, Vick!

That's such a lovely, beautifully written piece which fits excellently with EBD. I love the style, very engaging, and poor Tom! What a shame about their relationship, but I was pleased to read the note of reconciliation at the very end.

Thanks, jayj!
