About the Book

Nancy and Plum

So here we are on Christmas Eve, locked up in rotten Mrs Monday’s boarding house with no presents and no Christmas dinner, while all the other children have gone home for the holidays. I’m Nancy, by the way, and this is my sister Plum. Luckily, we’re both pretty good at making up stories about the adventures and pretty dresses that we’d like to have, and that helps us put up with Mrs Monday and her awful niece Marybelle. But one day, we’re going to escape, and maybe we’ll find a nice home and a family all of our own. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful? (exerpt from book)

So begins the story of two orphaned sisters at Mrs. Monday’s Boarding School. But nothing is heavenly for Nancy and Pamela (aka Plum): their parents died in a tragic accident years ago, they’re constantly punished by the cruel Mrs. Monday, and they’re all alone for the holidays.

Luckily, Nancy and Plum have each other, and though their prospects may be bleak, they’re determined to change their lot for the better. If their plan works, the spirited sisters will never spend Christmas at the cold, dark boarding school again. But what will they find on the other side of Mrs. Monday’s gate?

Adventure, warmth, unforgettable characters, and unexpected kindness abound in this classic story by Betty MacDonald, which was originally published in 1952.
