Better than average vintage fiction.

Cy Whittaker left Bayport as a young man, vowing never to return. After he makes his fortune at sea, however, he changes his mind and comes back to the old homestead. All his relatives are dead and he has to start from scratch to make a name for himself in the community. Sounds simple enough. But add in an abandoned child, a fiesty school teacher, a corrupt politician and a few vicious gossips, and you’ve got quite a page turner.

Written many years ago but has an essential sweetness and innocent air about it, as do of Joseph C Lincoln's books. It's literary comfort food, the kind of book to read when feeling fragile or a bit lost in the modern world and in need of a gentle word.
