When Mrs Devere, a scientist, moves into Raven’s End (a large house), Rachel Grant finds her a dragon and unfriendly woman who seems to hold her daughter Laura a virtual prisoner. Mrs Devere suddenly becomes friendly to Rachel’s classmates, and soon after they start behaving as if they are brainwashed, acting like strangers, and do nothing but study. It gets worse when Mrs Devere gets a teaching job at Rachel’s school. Then Rachel discovers that Mrs Devere was sacked from her previous school for strange, unethical teaching methods – and Laura is not her daughter.
