Published in 1908, Once Aboard the Lugger was Arthur S. Hutchinson’s first novel. Subtitled, “The History of George and his Mary,” this is the story of a commonplace couple. The first part is called “Of George,” the second “Of Mary,” and the third through fifth discuss history, love, and war—the book then ends with part six, “Of Paradise Lost and Found.”
