“In The Salt is a novel that seeps into your skin and your bones like a cold New England day. Vivid in detail, imagery and emotion, Maggie’s journey from anger to acceptance is one that anyone with an unconventional family can relate to. Is there any other kind?”

“In the Salt is an intelligently written, funny, and entertaining literary journey about three generations of strong-willed women who discover themselves and their history – which is rife with dark secrets and familial complexity. This was our choice for book club, and our discussion was lively, real, raw and passionate. We all loved it.”

“Couldn’t put this book down. It ranks up there with the Goonies and the Sandlot. It shows the vulnerability & honesty of being a kid. And when you have Faith, anything is possible. We need to believe that today!! Especially all the kids who have had a hard uncertain time this past year. Things work out and the possibilities are right in front of us. I Love This Story!!”
