A doctor prescribes a winter's rest in the South for Chester, so he can fully recover from the injuries he incurred while protecting Lucilla. So after Max's graduation from the Naval Academy, Grandmother Elsie and the Raymonds travel on the Dolphin to Florida and on to Viamede, Elsie's beloved Louisiana home. Max and Evelyn become engaged, and Bob Johnson and Sydney Dinsmore wed. When Evelyn and Lulu catch the bridal bouquet together at the wedding, the family wonders who will be the next to we. Following a pleasant winter at Viamede, the families travel to Atlantic City and to the Maine coast for a pleasant summer holiday. Recommended for ages 10-14.
