Three women's lives converge around the century-old mystery of a shipwreck. There's Sophia, a reclusive author who retreated from the world after a tragic loss, Claire, a young journalist who's reluctantly returned to her home town, and Josephine, a passenger from the ill-fated ship.
As they discover the truth about lost love and buried secrets, each woman finds hope, healing, and strength to face the future.
Eric Wilson5 Stars Out Of 5March 22, 2007Eric WilsonMartinusen is an underappreciated author. In the past, she's woven thoughtful suspense stories around WWII secrets; she's crafted characters we care for and can't forget. Here, in "The Salt Garden," she tries a different angle--with remarkable results. Less overtly suspenseful, yet full of mystery and secrets, this book takes us into the hearts and minds of three women--a modern, frustrated reporter; a reclusive, elderly novelist; and a deceased journal writer. The threads of these women's stories intertwine, then pull tighter and tighter as more facts come to light. The pages are filled with beautiful imagery and thought-provoking introspection. Martinusen shows her skill, letting each character have a voice distinctly her own. I believe Cindy Martinusen has many more tales to tell. Her heart for God, her struggle with the issues of life, and her honesty in the midst of it all lend weight to her words and emotion to each of her stories. More readers should take notice!
