Author Mark Piper shares a very interesting story along a Sailor's Snug Harbor during the time of March 1916 in Quincy, Massachusetts. It is here that columnist John, who worked for the newspaper, was in search of Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory for a newspaper article. Upon finding Captain Gregory, John was eager for him to share his story, however before he would began his story, the captain, made sure that John was served his famous doughnuts covered in cinnamon and sugar. It appeared as though everyone who ever tasted Captain Gregory's doughnuts were in awe of the taste and sweet savory smell. After serving John these wonderful tasting doughnuts, it was then he began to share his story of being up on the ship called, "Felix Lighter."
The adventures that author Piper shares with his readers are both enticing and entertaining. In this short story entitled; "Cinnamon Diamonds" the reader is taken upon a grand voyage where Captain Gregory made this wonderful discovery of these awesome, unbelievable tasting doughnuts. Captain Gregory is still remembered by a small weatherbeaten plaque that states this fine captain invented the first hole in the donut. While this may not appear to many to be a huge deal, ask the question; where would donut shops all across the world would be without this fantastic discovery? While indeed this is a short story, it is a very fun and enjoyable read. Author Piper takes the reader on a worthwhile journey that will allow the reader to almost smell and taste these delicious donuts.
