Book Club giveaway: The Salt God’s Daughter
When a recent guest post by Ilie Ruby sparked a lot of interesting comments, I asked Ilie if she would consider allowing me to give away a copy of her book. She quickly responded that she’d love to, and offered six copies of the book, so a book club could read and discuss it together! I’m thrilled to be able to give away a set of six autographed copies of The Salt God’s Daughter for one lucky book club!! (You can find questions to get your discussion started here.) About the book:
Set in Long Beach, California, beginning in the 1970s, The Salt God’s Daughter follows three generations of extraordinary women who share something unique—something magical and untamed that makes them unmistakably different from others. Theirs is a world teeming with ancestral stories, exotic folklore, inherited memory, and meteoric myths. Meet Diana Gold, who raises her two daughters on the road, charting their course according to an imagined map of secrets drawn from the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Meet her daughters—Ruthie and Dolly—who exist in the wilds of this enchanted landscape, fiercely protective of each other and unaware of how far they have drifted from traditional society. When they are caught in the riptide of a culture that both demonizes and glorifies female sexuality. they must forge a path that none of them could have predicted, calling into question their ties to each other and to the ocean. Impeccably narrated in two powerful and distinctive voices, The Salt God’s Daughter is a provocative, timeless story that explores our ability to transcend the stories of our past, and to find joy and belonging in the possibilities of the future.
