The girls, known as the Brodie set, are special ones but their teacher is top of the list. Jean Brodie, an unconventional and free thinking single in the prime of her life. The lessons, like secret, conspirating meetings teaching the girls the Brodie laws, her special view about men, about women but also about war and politics. Jean Brodies influence is strong and she accepts nothing else than total loyalty. But strong women like to fight against each other, even if they are teacher and scholar. Searching for the one who betrayed Jean Brodie is learning her own lesson.
I love the Muriel Spark ones, they are always free minded, very emanzipated literature full of strong women fighting for their way, free to fall down, but even strong enough to stand up again. Like a spring breeze going through your mind and soul.
