van Pelt, a teacher himself, fondly relates the history of the Hareton school, from it’s early days as a small school on a hillside, through to a much larger building, extended and developed over many years. There are many hidden corners, and corridors, and secrets, which are hinted at – but no malevolence, rather, just the opposite. So Mr van Pelt, you’ve made the pitch, let’s have the novel!
