SusyLuvsPaul:I love the sound of her speaking voice, don't you (and her singing to complement Paul's vocals, of course)?
I had her cook books but don't know what's happened to them
Yes she had a wonderful speaking voice, which evolved into a mild English accent over time. In interviews of the two of them, you could always see that Paul's heart skipped a beat anytime he heard her speak She did have a beautiful singing voice as well.
Amazon and Ebay have copies of Linda's cookbooks, you can probably find replacements there. I'm glad I was able to get them at bookstores when they first came out. They're a bit ragged now but I guess if a book is used alot and well worn, that's a compliment to the author.
