In Lavinia's Shoes Lyn McKenzie weaves historical fact into a fictional account of a shipwreck that brings two cultures together. Through the interaction and friendships of a 19th Century New England girl and those she encounters McKenzie keeps the reader turning the pages while learning about customs of another land and era. Youth, their parents and teachers will find this story interesting, informative and entertaining. As in McKenzie's first book, Betsy, Girl Scout of Woodward Center, historians will find no fault with historical fact and will find themselves transported in time. Lyn McKenzie has spent her life with history. Nationally recognized as a Girl Scout historian, she serves on the board of and is the archivist for the Falmouth Historical Society. During WWII she was a Naval Air Technical Training Command instructor for the WAVES and later became a commercial pilot. McKenzie, a master storyteller, has written numerous stories and poems about life in Maine-past and present.
