Editorial Reviews

J. Cooper
Return to Islamorada is a funfilled and touching book that holds your interest throughout. Anyone that has ever sailed in the sometimes ominous waters near the Florida Keys can readily identify with this book. The everchanging water conditions that threaten our very existance will bring us back to the reality of the "Real World" and remind of us what life is really all about. If you read it you will love it and perhaps it will give you something to think about...

Richard Moran
Anyone who has ever sailed or operated a small boat will find something they can relate to in this funny,historical,and sometimes serious,novel. If you Know the Florida Keys,you will recognize many locations, if not, you will want to see them when you finish this great read. The characters are well developed, they will have you laughing but also tug at your heart. The authors use of historical flashback makes this book not only humorous but educational. Buy this one you will love it.
