Miss Blaine's Prefect and the Golden Samovar

Shona McMonagle is a librarian of middling age and mild appearance—and with an education from the Marcia Blaine School for Girls, this makes her the perfect candidate for an important mission: a time-traveling trip to Tzarist Russia. Armed with a vague purpose (she'll know it when she sees it), two less-than-helpful servants, and a twenty-first-century mindset, Shona crashes through nineteenth-century Russian society with scandalous and comedic effect. With a charmingly myopic protagonist and a large cast of absurd characters, this farcical historical fiction will keep you laughing long after the last page has been turned. (SM)
