Dear Reader,

Have you ever felt like you didn't fit in? Growing up, I did. I think everybody feels that way sometimes, don't you?

The Stranje House series is about girls who didn't fit into Regency England's rigid high society — and the shrewd headmistress who is turning these gifted young ladies into spies in the war against Napoleon.

Exciting research proves that throughout history young women really did serve as spies. Your bookclub or classroom can Skype with me and I'll tell you all about it.

I love meeting readers! Email: Kathleen@KathleenBaldwin.com for a chance to win signed copies of A SCHOOL FOR UNUSUAL GIRLS and EXILE FOR DREAMERS, plus companion goodies.

Live courageously!
Kathleen
