Read full description of the books:
I give this book 4.5 stars. This is the sequel to Roller Skates which won the Newbery sometime in the 1930's. This book is SO much better than it's predecessor! When I read Roller Skates I was disappointed because it was hard to believe that it was written by the same person who wrote Maggie Rose: her Birthday Christmas (which I love) but with this book it was easy to see that the person who was inspired to write a book as beautiful as Maggie Rose could also write The Year of Jubilo.
This book is about Lucinda and her family and how they come together to make ends meet after falling into hard times after the father and bread winner of the family passes away. They move from their large and stately home in New York into their small cottage in Maine. They must leave their high society and their maids behind and turn this quaint little harbor town into home. Each member of the family has to do his/her part and it's touching to see how the members of the community rally around too. Very inspirational, I highly recommend it!
A couple of my favorite quotes from the book:
"But there were times when prayer was medicine for her soul; and her soul had the bad habit of going off on rampages and getting banged and bruised. Badly sometimes. She was glad she had a room to bring it to and patch it quietly, and alone."
"If you had counted every man there and what he had in money put aside, you would not have found a round two thousand dollars held between the lot of them. But in their tidy farms, in honesty and decency and good will, in health and self-respect, and in the gift of fruitful work and blessed sleep, they could have been accounted wealthy men."
By the way, this book is no longer in print and is rather hard to find. My library and the other libraries in our area don't carry it anymore so I had to get it through interlibrary loan. But it was well worth the trouble!
