It begins with a drowning. One day Mr. Arcilla, the romance language teacher at Briarfield, an all-girls boarding school, is found dead at the bottom of Reed Pond. Young and handsome, the object of much fantasy and fascination, he was adored by his students. For Lilith and Romy, Evie and Claire, Nellie and Grace, he was their first love, and their first true loss. In TELL ME WHO WE WERE, Kate McQuade explores the ripple effect of one transformative moment on six lives, witnessed at a different point in each girl’s future.
