Soon, she’s sailing the waves on the Maggie B., with her baby brother James along for the adventure! There are exciting things to go and new things to see, and even when a late afternoon thunderstorm churns the waves, Margaret knows just how to comfort James, playing her fiddle until he’s soothed to sleep.
