Book description
Excitements lie ahead for the Vivians girls when they return to the school for the autumn term in Winter at Vivians. There is the news of an archaeological dig to take place in the grounds, which captures their imaginations - could it really be possible that the school is the site for St Ninian’s church? Their fascination with the project leads them into several interesting activities from a trip to visit Ninians’s cave to one girl becoming inspired to write a story with a surprising theme for the newly formed magazine. But when deepest winter descends on the school, work on the dig must stop for the time being. The girls have the school’s jubilee celebrations to look forward to, but how can the event go ahead with roads blocked and supplies not getting through? In the coldest winter for decades, Vivians has to prove its resourcefulness and endurance as it rises to the challenge. The weather nearly proves fatal in the case of new girl, Jennifer Cornish, whose terror at having a secret revealed leads her to take a very desperate step. But the warmth and kindness of Miss Lawrence and her fellow teachers help Jennifer overcome her problems and finally enjoy life at Vivians. A folk dance competition is a welcome indoor activity to replace games, and when the dig is finally resumed a breakthrough comes from a most unexpected place.
