Return engagement for the cast of Centennial Summer, this account of the Rogers family and their vicissitudes in Brooklyn and New York, culminates with the blizzard of '88. Father, with small prospects of any kind of good fortune; Mother, hating Zenie's love for Clint, the baseball player; Henry, supercilious and critical, agree on the idea of a rooming house in Mahattan, but it ends by catering chiefly to the family. Aunt Zena returns, other daughters and their families make their appearances, Father manages a job that fits his talents, and there is a general windup of romancing. Like the earlier book, the incidents are strung along actual events, social, political, historical, etc., and the whole reflects the changing pattern of the times. A natural for the readers of Centennial Summer, but with individuality enough to stand on its own merits.
