What a delightful read from an innovative and fluent author!  Carol Newman Cronin senta copy of this little tale to review and share with my grandchildren.  I do so gladly.  Cronin is knowledgeable about sailing vessels and the New England area.  Knowing little about the hurricane of 1938 that devastated the area in September ot that year, I found the historical blurb about what happened succinct and to the point.  Oliver's time travel is an appealing way to provide a look into life of that period and how weather affected those who lived on that coast.  Great tale to share with a child or to give to she/he to read for themselves.
