Times were tough in the small New Brunswick 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 unexpected adventure and a lesson about love that she would never forget.
The Scallop Christmas is based on a true story told to the author by her friend Marcia, who lived most of the story.Author: Janet Freeberg
