SUMMER AT HASTY COVE by Madye Lee Chastain


Email this review


When the Parkers decide to summer at the seaside art colony of Hasty Cove, they do not expect to find a tumble down old cottage with no facilities and a boat that will hardly stay afloat. Mrs. Parker, awakening from a nostalgic dream of what Hasty Cove was like when, as an eleven-year-old, she summered there, resolves to make the best of it. As she and her two children involve themselves in the life there they find that Hasty Cove is still a lively and warm community affording both children and adults a creative and thoroughly enjoyable summer. This story of a harbor art colony, peopled with original characters and convincingly sea-bright, affords the young reader an entertaining vicarious vacation. By the author of Jerusha's Ghost, Leave it to the Fripseys, etc.
