More Than a Match

(1996)
A novel by

 
 
It is the summer of 1948. Reigning tennis champ Lida Hendel has a temper to match her serve. When 16-year-old Ginny Stannix turns up on the scene, Lida meets her toughest challenge yet. Ginny's a popular boarding school girl; she's everything that Lida is not-or so it seems to Lida, isolated by her German language and culture, thwarted by a cranky and penny-pinching dad.

Intrigue, slander and rumors of shameful secrets reach breaking point as the Final looms large. Who's behind the accusations against the Hendel family? What mystery lurks in Stannix House, and why is Ginny's uncle, Hubert, slowly being driven out of his mind?

Exciting, climactic and emotionally charged-More Than a Match will grip you to the end.
