In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be. Jo, a fierce and quiet loner, is devoted to the mysteries of her family’s salt farm, while Claire is popular, pretty, and yearns to flee the salt at any cost. But the Gilly land hides a dark legacy that proves impossible to escape. Although the community half-suspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn’t stop Whit Turner, the town’s wealthiest bachelor, from forcing his way into their lives. It’s Jo who first steals Whit’s heart, but it is Claire—heartbroken over her high school sweetheart—who marries him. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband’s pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. What the Gilly sisters learn about each other, the land around them, and the power of the salt, will not only change each of their lives forever, it will also alter Gilly history for good.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tiffany Baker has done it again: The Gilly Salt Sisters is both deliciously, magically, strange and heartrendingly familiar, a beautiful and bewitching story of the elements that bind us to each other—family, love, loss, and memory. I was pulled into its world on the very first page and wanted to stay forever.” Eleanor Brown, New York Times bestselling author
“Tiffany Baker’s novel has grit and polish and some salt of its own. It’s a beautifully written tale about the resourceful and determined connection of women. The Gilly Salt sisters are a brackish bunch—definitely my kind of people.” Brunonia Barry, New York Times bestselling author
“Fans of Baker’s acclaimed The Little Giant of Aberdeen County won’t be disappointed with this quirky, complex, and original tale. It is also sure to enchant readers who enjoy Alice Hoffman and other authors of magical realism.” Library Journal
“A heartfelt tale of family relationships, small-town drama, and new opportunities…[A] poignant, lush, and well-written tale of family secrets, revenge, forgiveness, and connections not easily severed.” Booklist
