Tiffany Baker can spin a story: there's something quiet and beautiful in her writing that gently pulls you along into the ever-darkening, slightly gothic world of a New England's salt farm. If you like Alice Hoffman and Sarah Addison Allen, try this.

Entertaining read -- however as a cat lover I had a hard time with the matter of fact way the killing of the feral kittens was done (mercifull or not).

What kind of name is Icicle for a beautiful white spirited and willing horse? Not much suspense here for me - the bad people get theirs and there is a happy ending.

Interesting story of sisters who aren't sisters and the hard work of salt farming. I was never sure why the members of the Turner family so desperately wanted the salt farm. But it did make me want to know more about salt farming.

patron review:

Mystery, past, present, mixed to tell the story of two sisters. Mistakes, love, hate, accidents...great ending.

What happens when a scorned wife takes her husband's pregnant teenage mistress and moves in with her estranged sister on a failing salt farm? Tiffany Baker's spare, luminous tale "The Gilly Salt Sisters", which kept me spellbound with its multiple tensions, tinges of magic, and masterful use of metaphor. It's a little slow to start, but stay with it --- the ending will reward your efforts.

Such a wonderful read. What the heck does a girl from Seattle know about salt marshes in Cape Cod? Alot more now since I finished this book. I stayed completely engaged and engrossed in this story to the very end,

A lovely book that made me want to pack my bags and head to Cape Cod to stand on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean and smell the sea wind.
