A story of a child of an apparently wealthy family, who is enrolled with great ceremony at a local ladies' school. But the girl's wealth and standing are illusory, as the school discovers when term bills go unpaid and the girl's father proves to be nonexistent. The question of the girl's origins proves to be a stone thrown into a much larger Victorian pond.

When Charlotte Bronte died in 1855, she left behind the start of a new novel. The twenty-page fragment introduced a lost girl and signalled the author's most compelling work since 'Jane Eyre'. Now, Clare Boylan has turned this intriguing beginning into a story of mystery and page-turning suspense...The arrival of Conway Fitzgibbon at Fuchsia Lodge with his daughter Matilda is a source of delight to the headmistress, Miss Wilcox. The unsuccessful ladies' school is eager for new pupils, particularly one so finely dressed and boasting a father who is 'quite the gentleman'. But as Miss Wilcox inquires about arrangements for the Christmas holidays, she is in for a shock. Conway Fitzgibbon, like the address he left behind, does not exist

Room for a single lady by Clare Boylan ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To Eugene Rafferty, girls are like money--they have to be saved. His three young daughters, despite living in 1950's Dublin, seem doomed to a childhood of Victorian austerity until a stranger comes to their house, trailing the allure of the world. Bridie, Kitty and Rose are growing up and they no longer trust their beautiful but oppressed mother, but as family fortunes decline, the Raffertys are forced to take in lodgers, and they introduce the girls to new experiences--of sex, of spite, of love, and tragedy
