The editor is stuck between a rock and a hard place. He went to the school, and doesn't want to hurt it, but he can't ignore the parents either. So his solution is to send Iris down to poke around, see what she can find, then let the matter die quietly.
This is the set up, but it really hasn't much to do with the book, which is another look at the dynamics of a difficult family. Iris's sister Caroline has relocated to the local town, and all she wants is peace and quiet away from her late husband's relations. Little does she realize her own relations can cause just as much chaos. First Iris descends, though her attention is immediately drawn away from the newspaper business by a handsome schoolmaster. Then a telegram arrives. Brother Robert is coming with his fiancee. Robert doesn't show but the very young fiancee does. In the midst of the romantic shenanigans of her brother and sister, Caroline finds love herself.
A very sweet book with all the romantic entanglements neatly ironed out by the end. There is also an untrained dog, a old man obsessed with sailing boats, a dedicated bird watcher, and a toboggan ride gone wrong to make you laugh.
