Orphaned at six, small and studious Jane Williams thinks she’s finally escaped violence and poverty when she’s offered a full scholarship to prestigious Birch Grove Academy for Girls. She’s given a cottage of her own and loves her classes and her new friends. She even starts tutoring the headmistress’s gorgeous son, Lucien. Things seem too good to be true.
The longer she stays, the more Jane comes to suspect that something sinister is going on. Why did the wife of a popular teacher kill herself? What happened to the former scholarship student? Why does Lucien’s brother, Jack, seem to dislike her so much?
As Jane begins to piece together the truth, she must decide what she would risk to stay at Birch Grove…because even the brightest people make terrible mistakes when they’re offered everything they’ve always desired.
