Hi, there! Today I decided to show off one of my latest additions to my TBR: A School for Unusual Girls, first book in the Stranje House series, by Kathleen Baldwin ❤
Welcome to Stranje House.
It’s 1814. Napoleon is exiled on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, has become one of Regency England’s dark little secrets. The daughters of the beau monde who don’t fit high society’s constrictive mold are banished to Stranje House to be reformed into marriageable young ladies. Or so their parents think. In truth, Headmistress Emma Stranje, the original unusual girl, has plans for the young ladies—plans that entangle them in the dangerous world of spies, diplomacy, and war.
After accidentally setting her father’s stables on fire while performing a scientific experiment, Miss Georgiana Fitzwilliam is sent to Stranje House. But Georgie has no intention of being turned into a simpering, pudding-headed, marriageable miss. She plans to escape as soon as possible—until she meets Lord Sebastian Wyatt. Thrust together in a desperate mission to invent a new invisible ink for the English war effort, Georgie and Sebastian must find a way to work together without losing their heads—or their hearts…
Why I got interested: one of the best sugared historical romances that I have ever read was written by Kathleen – Cut From The Same Cloth. It’s only natural for me to want to pursue her more, especially on YA ❤ Also, Kathleen was curious about my opinion on this book – we talked on Instagram and I lost my shit and fangirled hard – so it is now on my top of To Be Bought and Read books, haha!
That’s it, thanks for reading 🙂
