Ok...so not, strictly Antonia Forest, obviously, as she died some years ago. BUT....Girls Gone By Publishers have published a new Marlow book called Spring Term by Sally Hayward and can I HUGELY recommend it? I've just read it, and for all you Marlow fans out there it is well worth a read. It is tremendously authentically written- faithful to Antonia Forest's language and style and continues the story from 'Attic Term'. I won't give any spoilers away - but just to say that if you wanted to know what happened to Ginty/Patrick/Nicola following on from the last Antonia Forest (where too many questions were left unanswered) then get hold of a copy of this book. I really, really enjoyed it.

I have it! I was so excited. It is really excellent and almost indistinguishable in style from the others. I have them all now including Falconers Lure and The Marlows and the Traitor.

I really enjoyed it too! Great 'voice', and the plot works very well.

yes it's pretty good, although the cover is revolting!

Another recommendation here! Sally Hayward has caught AF's voice wonderfully - I hope she writes more.
