Out of print for more than half a century, The School by the River is Elinor M. Brent-Dyer's most sought-after book. Set in a "Ruritanian" kingdom and loosely connected to the Chalet School series, this full-length novel concerns the fortunes of a gifted young English girl, Jennifer Craddock, and her friends, students at the music college in the Balkan kingdom of Mirania.

First published in 1930, when Elinor M. Brent-Dyer was at the height of her creative powers, and imbued with her characteristic spirit of place and lively characters, The School by the River is far more than just another boarding-school story. Bettany Press is delighted to publish this new edition, with an Introduction by Helen McClelland.
