More about Lucinda of Roller Skates. Her father has died and the family goes to Maine to spend a year in the summer cottage which is all they have left. Lucinda learns to cook -- that is all she is considered capable of doing, while her older brothers take on the job of earning a living for them all. But at the end Lucinda, temper and all, has earned the right to be "one of the Wymans," not a tag-along. A grand, human story, beautifully written, with lots of humour, and breathing the salty, foggy air of Maine.
