"The pungent humor of Zenas Bradshaw, an elderly storekeeper who struggles to keep a family business alive while involved in a fight to protect his grandson from some malicious tongue-wagging, carries the story ...

He enlists in the Army Air Forces{u2014}"cleared out and left the old man," as the town gossips put it{u2014}before the outbreak of war with Japan. The story develops around Mark's romance via mail with one of the town's prettiest girls and how the affair helps solve Zenas's problem of keeping his business from going on the rocks." -- C.D.T

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

33 editions published between 1918 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 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."
