Book Description
Mary sails the world in her dreams in search of adventure, knowledge, and a fair price for fish. A fairy-tale in reverse, Prince Charming is a Spanish fish merchant who knows a thing or two about fair pricing. During the 1930s in Newfoundland, young Mary spends the summers working in the fishery with her family. Throughout the summer, she dreams of buying calico for dresses with laces and ribbons to trim them. At the end of the season, however, Mary is disappointed to discover that the price of fish has dropped and her money is needed for more useful purchases. When the annual "Boston Box" arrives from Aunt Chrissie, Mary's dreams may be answered.
