Jo and Claire Gilly are sisters who are blessed and cursed by the magical legacy of their family’s New England salt farm. The story follows them from youth to old age as they struggle to accept the power of the salt. As part of the story, the listener hears how Dee, a confused teen with a spunky attitude, arrives in town and changes the sisters’ lives forever. Narrator Angela Brazil gives an acceptable reading but doesn’t capture the magical essence of the story. The listener is often drawn out of the story by misplaced emphasis on words, a slight nasal tone, and an awareness of the narrator at work. However, the well-drawn characters, surprising secrets revealed in every chapter, and sumptuous language make this a story worth listening to.
