A Page from the Past

McCue, James Westaway. Signed Copy! Dangerous Waters: A Novel about Men and the Sea. Silver Lake P.O., MA: New England Book Co, 1952. First Edition. Hardcover, pages clean & tight (some stain on cover). Autographed by author in ink on front free endpaper.   Very good condition.
Set in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. (#516)

So read the description of a book published 60 years ago in Newton, Massachusetts, a book that was advertised for sale on-line at in Newton Corner, Massachusetts.  This  week, DANGEROUS WATERS left its adopted family of 20 years to return home. The author's grandson arrived this past  Wednesday to claim DANGEROUS WATERS,  (set on Cape Cod and signed by the author in ???) as a gift for his father, the son of the author.  A family reunited!  What wonders a book can achieve!
