The Scallop Christmas

"Times were tough in the small New England fishing village where Marcie lived. No one had any money, and work was hard to find. So the villagers rejoiced one glorious fall when an unexpected bounty of scallops filled their little bay. For young Marcie, a week of harvesting scallops also brought an adventure and a lesson about love that she would never forget."

Told to the author by her friend Marcia over 35 years ago, this is the true story of a mid-century Maine Christmas.
