"Shavings", a novel by Joseph Crosby Lincoln( Book )

33 editions published between 1918 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a quaint, quiet, lovable maker of wooden, toy windmills living peacefully on Cape Cod. The village character named "Shavings" has whittled himself into prosperity. The fame of his product spreads to Boston and he can sell all the toys he can make. He is cold to the lure of money until an attractive widow moves next door to him. Then he buys himself a suit of store clothes and perks up a bit. The widow's younger brother is accused of theft from the bank in which he is employed. "Shavings" hustles around and borrows the money alleged to be missing, swearing he found it where the young man had dropped it, in a corner of his dusty windmill shop. But his sacrifice goes for nothing. There really had been no theft and there was no money missing. The widow is duly impressed by the noble act of her good friend, but not sufficiently impressed to want to marry him. She prefers a husky major in the aviation service, and "Shavings " is left with the philosophical observation that any old dog who wastes his time baying at the moon because he is lonesome is a fool dog and no mistake

The temperament and "half love" of the son of a Spanish opera singer make difficulties with his Yankee grandfather. The young fellow, half Spanish, half New England, wholly poet and artist ... Set in the small hamlet, chafing at the restraints and humdrumness of the place, Albert makes a delicious contrast to the native population. And each is as likeable and as loving as the other. We understand the passionate, temperamental boy as well as his old Grandfather, with his fury against all that sort of "foolishness."

Unfortunately now there are a few snags with A. Rodgers Warren's estate and Cap'n Warren decides its best to toughen his wards up and maybe teach them some humility in the process.

Here is Mr. Pratt again-the jolly old Cape Cod fisherman, who manages to have more ludicrous adventures than a dozen ordinary mortals, and who tells about them in a breezy, salty fashion that is delicious. In this story Mr. Pratt by chance anchors his dory off the grounds of the Sea Breeze Bluff Sanitarium for Right Living and Rest. Almost immediately he finds himself standing kneedeep in water carrying a "hefty' squirming madien lady, while a bulldog menaces him from the shore, and a bibulous man in a rowboat threatens to cut the anchor of his dory should he try to return. However, Mr. Pratt is just the man to come out of such a situation with colours flying, and it gets him a job as handy man at the santitarium. And then the fun really begins
