Once Upon Cape Cod
by Dana Eldridge 

Dana Eldridge writes with an infectious sense of humor and an unembarrassed love of the past.  This is a book of essays where time stands still, the way it should.  Here is the classic theme of local, small town life before we began to run away from it.  It was an ideal many still look for, but seldom find.   Cape Cod has not deserted its own proportions, in a run of fish, a clam flat, and the endlessly changing shores.  We have only to stop, and go out looking for them.  Softcover signed by author $ 10.95

In 1982, shortly after her husband was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Carol Hamblet Adams began writing My Beautiful Broken Shell.  "I went to the beach one day to gather a few shells for my collection.  The first one I picked up was a broken scallop shell, so I threw it back.  But then I picked it up again and saw myself as I was at that moment . . . broken too, . . . just like the shell . . . Over the years, this reflection has helped me and many others get through difficult times.  It is my hope that you may find comfort in these gentle words."  Hardcover signed by author $ 12.99
