5.0 out of 5 stars Sailing at sea with my lover, December 12, 2012
This review is from: Falling Off The Wind (Paperback)

Falling off the Wind by Richard Meibers was given to me for a free review by The Cadence Group. This is the author’s fourth novel he has written. “Falling off the wind: a sailboat falls off the wind when it points its bow further from the eye of the wind. The opposite of heading up into the wind. “

I have to admit I am not much of a sailboat fan or wanting to read much, although this novel was very educating in the ways of sailing. There were many words I would look up as to understand what the writing meant. The book talks in “Spanish” at times so if you are not aware of how to speak the language it can set you off into a different direction.

The Schooner is a sailing boat with two or more masks and 50 year old Clement Scheutz and Samantha sail the named Panacea. It is a boat which they bought and wanted to rebuild because it is a 65 foot wooden-hulled boat built in the 1920′s that was used as a British racing boat. Not married but together is Samantha and Clement. Samantha is much younger and after seven years on the Schooner at sea they begin to have doubts of each other’s lives and the lives they chose together sailing. In order to continue to sail as they both love to do, they go to the coast of Puerto Rico and try to make money to keep sailing, eat, get supplies and continue their love of sailing.

The story takes through a love story and a horrible hurricane (Hugo) which hits Culebra bringing with it destruction no one could ever imagine.

I would recommend anyone that loves sailing, water, hurricanes, and romance lovers to pick up a copy today.
