When I think of Cape Ann, I remember the historical novels of Ruth Langland Holberg, which I used to read but only one of which I think I still own, At the Sign of the Golden Anchor (I remember the heroine had snapping dark eyes). The Historical Society is, in fact, in Gloucester. I have not been to Gloucester for many years but maybe the NewBetsys would like to join me!

I would love to go! I have THE LITTLE HOUSE hanging over my piano in all four seasons! Speaking of RLH - one of my all time favorites was THE GIRL IN THE WITCH HOUSE. Splendid read!
