Two 40-something professionals living in Toronto were ready for an adventure -- so instead of just dreaming about one, the Vanderhoofs saved, planned, and eventually sailed away for two whole years. In this "finely crafted" (Kirkus Reviews
) book, armchair travelers get to follow along, experiencing life onboard a 42-foot sailboat, Receta
, in the Caribbean as Ann Vanderhoof vividly describes the colorful landscapes, characters, food (recipes included), and events they encountered along the way. But do be warned: don't read this mouthwatering book while hungry!
