Signpost to Switzerland – Mabel Esther Allan
By Mabel Esther Allen. Seventeen-year-old Camilla Lingard, pretty and spoiled, is having a gay time in London with a young man of whom her father disapproves. Against her wishes, Mr. Lingard sends his daughter to friends who run a hotel in Switzerland, so she will learn how to work and make use of her really good mind….
Although Camilla tries not to succumb to the beauty of the country, it finally captures her imagination. Despite this, she is still eager to end what she considers her exile, and return to London. Near-tragedy awakens her to the warm and kindness of the Dettelmann family and her future takes a dramatic and unexpected turn.
