  • AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
  • THE WASHINGTON POST NOTABLE BOOK OF 2021
  • A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK
  • WINNER of the Isabel Allende Most Inspirational Fiction Award

NOMINEE for 2021 Goodreads Choice Award in Debut Novel and Historical FictionA sweeping, masterful debut about a daughter's fateful choice, a mother motivated by her own past, and a family legacy that begins in Cuba before either of them were born.

From 19th-century cigar factories to present-day detention centers, from Cuba to Mexico, Gabriela Garcia's Of Women and Salt is a kaleidoscopic portrait of betrayals—personal and political, self-inflicted and those done by others—that have shaped the lives of these extraordinary women. A haunting meditation on the choices of mothers, the legacy of the memories they carry, and the tenacity of women who choose to tell their stories despite those who wish to silence them, this is more than a diaspora story; it is a story of America’s most tangled, honest, human roots. 

Copies will be available on display at the Orange branch library. I have reserved several copies, so if you need a copy of the book, please email jkelch@delawarelibrary.org.
