Love is in the air . . .
The Exiles in Love is the third and final book in the award-winning The Exiles series, with Hilary McKay's trademark wit and warmth.
Ruth, Naomi, Rachel and Phoebe Conroy are all struggling to deal with the trials and tribulations of first love(s). Ruth develops a crush on the school bus driver, but finds herself conflicted when she also develops feelings for Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre, the temporary English teacher (who Naomi is also smitten with) AND Alan Adair who works in the butcher's shop.
Meanwhile, the younger two sisters have other things on their minds – Rachel is plotting to become May Queen at her school and Phoebe is in training to become an international spy. But when Big Grandma arranges for a French boy called Philippe to stay with the Conroy's, it's not long before all the girls fall head over heels for him as well . . .
Immerse yourself in this warm, witty and charming series from award-winning author Hilary McKay, perfect for girls aged 9-13. The first book in the series, The Exiles, won the 1992 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and its sequels, The Exiles at Home and The Exiles in Love, are just as fantastic.
Ruth, Naomi, Rachel and Phoebe Conroy are four delightfully troublesome sisters who manage to cause mischief and chaos – whether intentional or not! – wherever they go. Whether they are staying with their Big Grandma for the summer in Cumbria, thinking up hare-brained money-making schemes or falling in total, all-consuming love with multiple men, you're sure to have fun with the Conroys!
