A true short-story with history, science, and survival connections.

The HURRICANE of 1938 pounded Cape Cod, Massachusetts and was one of the deadliest and most destructive storms to hit New England. Roxane Eldredge-Coffin prepares her home the best she can for the impending storm, unaware of the dramatic, life-changing event that was about to happen involving electricity. Read to find out!


  • Literature: With “weather” such a part of life today, this is a great story about survival, as well as a reminder for preparedness. Includes discussion questions.
  • Science Connection: Questions about electricity included.
  • Read as a follow-up story to the biography, The Surfman’s Daughter – Growing up in a Cape Cod village 1904-1929. (Amazon e-book or print/published summer 2022)

Grades 6-12, adults

✎"I like this! You nailed it!" - Barb

✎"This is an interesting story for a family setting when you need something about hurricanes. It’s especially apropos if you live in the New England area. I read Rebecca Locklear’s book, The Surfman’s Daughter, that precedes this story, which is why this short story really appealed to me." - Cindy C.
