    Mary Thorne was devastated by the loss of her boyfriend, Michael, when he drowned at sea. Now her father was forcing her to get married to a man who seemed acceptable in his eyes...he has seen a lot of success. Mary meets Captain Richard Randall in the correct protocol of the day. She finds a lot to criticize about him, but he honestly lays out his plans to her. He wants to marry her and have a family, he will build her a large house and she will be financially secure...he adds that he will let her keep her independence. Her choice is to marry or be a spinster. Richard soon leaves on a shipwrecking job and gives her that time to make a decision. Mary's heart begins to change as she learns more about the man he is through his letters. As time goes on, she realizes her love for him. They grow in relationship as time goes on, facing happy times and hardships. Relationships are the key to this book...how to get them, keep them, and treasure them.

    Mythical Yarn Brings Life to Old Key West

    I purchased Jane Newhagen's Sand Dollar during a recent visit to the Florida Keys and found it a distinct advantage to be able to read the first half of the book while still there in its old Key West setting. Reading of St. Paul's, the graceful, cathedral-like Episcopal church we had just visited; of the original cemetery, whose history I learned during a tour of its present-day site; and of the shops along historic Duvall Street, put me in the midst of this epic story's framework. Many of the early landmarks still exist, and one could almost see and hear the characters speaking, the ships coming into port, the hurricane's howling, and the towering waves of storm surge. I even wept as the tragedies unfolded. Extensively and meticulously researched, this book showcases the author's ability to cast an imaginative concept into a disciplined and believable story backed by historical fact. It was consistently entertaining, informative, emotionally gripping and nearly impossible to lay... 5/5 Joyce Hersh "Impressed Reader" (Highlands Ranch, CO) - See all my reviews, September 16, 2007

    Old Key West Brought to Life

    0 4/5 Reader in the Midwest (Ohio) - See all my reviews This review is from: Sand Dollar: a tale of old Key West (Paperback) In Sand Dollar, author Newhagen invites the reader to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of nineteenth-century Key West. Every historical detail, from sailing ships to garden herbs, is so perfectly researched and presented that as I read I could feel the stifling southern heat and humidity and smell the pungent odors of fish and sweat. Newhagen's characters are real people, imperfect and struggling, fighting and loving, and their story, while sometimes painful to read, is engrossing...altogether, a fine mix of history and literature. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 28, 2007

    History Channel does it again, makes the ordinary interesting

    By Jim Clark, publisher Lee County Courier, Tupelo, MSYou probably have never heard of the state of Jefferson. It may not exist on paper but it certainly rests in the minds and hearts of many who no longer call themselves Northern Californians. In 1941, some counties in the area ceremonially seceded. What stopped the real movement was America's entry into World War II, but the notion has been rekindled in recent years.That's just one of the many interesting topics coveredthe recently released DVD set, How the States Got Their Shapes.The television series that airs on the History channel and is based on Mark Stein's book, How the States Got Their Shapes. It's hosted by Brian Unger, who was an original correspondent and producer on The Daily Show, from 1996-99. Comedy and history actually go together.One state border runs right through the middle of a business, a bar (where it's legal to sell alcohol) and a restaurant (where it's not).A lot of... 4/5 Jim Clark "Jim Clark" (Tupelo, MS) - See all my reviews, March 14, 2012

    Buy The Right Adapter

    The other reviews do a good job covering the size, sound, and features... so I'm skipping those. The overall package is reasonable for the price. The only draw back to this little keyboard is the missing power adapter. It wouldn't be so bad if the description or technical specs provided clear documentation to assist in locating an adapter that would work. Since this information is lacking, I've taken the liberty to do a little research and provide some direction.The hard part identifying a suitable adapter is decoding the adapter specs. While the voltage and amperage are usually easy to decipher, the jack size is almost always a convoluted mess to discern. Companies may or may not employ standard jacks based on voltage. In this case everyone is fortunate Casio employs a standard "L" receiver jack. For more info on jack sizes use RadioShack's Adaptaplug conversion matrix: [...].Knowing the voltage and jack type makes finding a suitable power adapter easy.

    Cool little keyboard!

    This keyboard fits into my slightly larger backpack. Its portability allows me to carry it around and work out melodic and harmonic ideas for the songs I write when I'm away from home. The eight-note polyphony is really helpful for chording.A problematic issue exists with the Casio SA-75 power adaptor that is advertised as an optional accessory on the Amazon page that features the keyboard. The adaptor isn't compatible because the jack-end doesn't fit into the 9.5 volt terminal on the back of the keyboard. The manual claims the six batteries required to operate the keyboard will last for about six hours, though.I contacted the seller of the SA-75 adaptor and they told me that the correct adaptor for the SA-76 keyboard won't be available until December 2010.The tones are clear and reasonably distinctive, perhaps slightly less so in the brass. The rhythm patterns cover all the basics, and there's more than enough volume control to play with. All in... 4/5 L. Spain (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews, October 12, 2010

    Beware the power adapter!

Heck "kemaebe" (OR United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Casio SA-76 44 Key Mini Keyboard, Orange (Electronics) Got this keyboard for my granddaughter for Christmas. She is thrilled with it but the power adapter that Amazon sells does NOT fit this keyboard. The one Amazon recommends is AD5MR but the adapter that should be for this keyboard is AD-E95100L. As another reviewer wrote, the only place I can find this adapter is in a set with other accessories with a price tag of $89!! Not cool! This is the reason for the 3 stars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 26, 2010

    Rating (24 reviews):
    (3.3/5)
    Ketch and Yawl Press LLC

    Total ripoff

    I'm a big Buffett and Corcoran fan but this book cannot possibly be contrued as anything else but a blatant attempt by Corcoran to sucker Buffett fans into buying an almost worthless and VERY skimpy book. It's all of 60 pages, minus 10 for the filler pages and you're left with just 50 pages of actual book. Half of the pages are pictures so you end up with a whopping 25 pages, that's right, 10 dollars for 25 pages, each containing only 2 to 3 paragraphs!! Most are simply brief descriptions of places that were in Key West while Buffett lived there and very little of anything else. Want to read a couple of sentences about Jimmy, that's all you get. Want to hear stories about what was a very colorful time in Buffett's life, don't bother, it isn't here. The longest story is about 3 sentences. The biggest surprise though was after I finished reading it I looked at my watch and discovered that it took me under 10 minutes. That's not a book, that's a magazine article. I'm very disappointed... 1/5 Carter Hall (State of Mind) - See all my reviews, August 9, 2007

    Your guide to Margaritaville!

    Tom Corcoran's book could have been called "The Parrothead's Guide to Key West." If you've ever picked out the line "Went down to Fausto's to get some chocolate milk" from Jimmy Buffett's parodic song "My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, and I Don't Love Jesus" and wondered what it meant, this book is for you. "Jimmy Buffett: The Key West Years" gives us descriptions of 35 of his old Key West haunts, combined with 39 photos (including front/back covers)--many of them taken by Corcoran himself, who as a Chart Room bartender gave Jimmy his first drink as a welcome to Key West. Later, Corcoran would turn photographer and provide the photos for a number of Jimmy's album covers (check your album photo credits!). Corcoran is such an insider that he casually mentions things that will blow away "parrotheads," who may find themselves wishing Corcoran would write a sequel.
