The French IslesPaperback - 1995
A SUMMER OF ADVENTURE When her newly remarried mother gives Andrea Baxter the choice of spending six months in distant Sierra Leone or returning to Anderson's Arm, Newfoundland, for the summer, Andrea chooses Anderson's Arm. For it was there, the previous Christmas, that Andrea came to love her aunt, uncle and cousins down east. Unfortunately, once her choice is made it looks like a long, dull summer is stretching ahead of Andrea. That is, until a routine trip with her uncle and cousin to bring home a new scallop-dragging boat turns into more of an adventure than Andrea could ever have imagined. While lost in the heavy fog at sea, they are mistakenly arrested for illegal scallop dragging by the St. Pierre et Miquelon coast guard. Andrea always welcomed the chance to practice her French, but this was taking it a little too far! Mystery, adventure and romance fill the rest of the summer as Andrea makes new friends on St. Pierre et Miquelon and experiences a very different way of life.
