Voirrey and Andreas Qulliam, whose Manx father, now dead, bequeathed them their exotic Manx names, react very differently when told that they are going to Barrule House, a co-educational boarding school on the Isle of Man. Voirrey is thrilled that she will be living in her father's native island; Andreas hates the idea of boarding with girls, and is in no way mollified when he discovers that Barrule House does not play cricket or "footer". Both sister and brother tread a dangerous path once on the island: Andreas's rebellious behaviour causes problems, and Voirrey's determination to discover her father's sister, Mona Quilliam, estranged from Voirrey's parents since their marriage, leads her into some difficult situations. Voirrey also has to cope with her attraction to lively, intelligent Christian Brent, who does not seem to reciprocate. How Voirrey learns the truth and how Andreas becomes reconciled to Barrule House form the exciting and entertaining plot of "The School on North Barrule".
