Near the conclusion of another summer season at shore, the Raymonds again face a long-dreaded separation. It is time for the captain to take his ship to sea once more.
Elsie grows accustomed to her new-found role as "Grandma" to Max, Lulu, and Gracie. Soon Elsie's daughter, Elsie, and Lester Leland's new baby, Edward, is born. In the fall and winter months that follow, Max, Lulu, and Gracie each learn valuable lessons about good character and obedience.
Soon spring arrives. Violet gives birth to a daughter, another Elsie, and Captain Raymond returns home safely to be with his burgeoning family once again.
