OFFSHORE SUMMER by Anna Rose Wright


Email this review


Mrs. Min's menage, aboard the Lulubelle, a Chesapeake oyster boat converted to serve seafood dinners, provided an invigorating summer for the twins Ross and Rosalind Ridley. Baby sitter Roz had her hands full taking charge of Lonny, a little boy who did his best to become water-logged by summer's end, and McGinnie, Mrs. Min's little daughter. General aide-de-camp Ross is the season's hero when he applies artificial respiration to save the life of Hector, ex-skipper of the restaurant-ship. A summer's work and fun brings them a boat of their own. Another family fun story by the author of Whirligig House.
