Elinor Brent-Dyer's Chalet School books have been popular for decades, and the characters and events introduced in the series have continued in present day fiction.
At the beginning of Gay from China at the Chalet School, we learn that several of the Chalet School mistresses, including Miss Annersley and Miss Wilson, have been hurt in a road accident. Miss Annersley, the Headmistress of the Chalet School, is the most severely injured, and it is over a year before she returns to the school. What happened in that year?
Hilda Annersley: Headmistress answers that question. Starting from the accident itself, Hilda Annersley's background and character, develops in detail, filling in many of the gaps in her history... her childhood and upbringing, the start of her friendship with Miss Wilson, and her experiences as a Headmistress in Austria after the Anschlüss.
