I just got a beautiful copy of Wind and Sea by Marsha Canham after waiting almost 3 years on my WL!!!!!!!  It has yellow colored edges to the paper.  It's soooo old.  I love it!!!

You probably got the one that I turned down -- I'm glad it went to someone appreciates it. :-) (I decided it wasn't my type of book and if I changed my mind I'd buy the ebook.)

Well, it's very old school romance so if that's not your thing you probably won't like it.   I guess I should say thank you, Willa!!

It was the chick-in-pants, sea-adventure aspects that turned me off. Just not my thing. Also I have yet to read a Canham that I loved. I know she's very popular with many people of impeccable taste but she doesn't seem to do it for me.

I bought that copy, I'll bet!   I paid 12.00+ for it from Amazon and then didn't like it.   I have loved some other of the later Canhams but not that one.  There is nothing wrong with it, it just didn't do it for me.
