Silver & Salt
On the death of her father, the celebrated photographer Max Hollingbourne, Ruthie returns to his villa in Greece after fifteen years in exile. Tortured by a dark secret from her childhood and by memories of her mother, whose despair had turned to madness, Ruthie is nevertheless able to build a fragile happiness at the villa with her older sister, Vinny. But the arrival of an English family at a neighboring cottage, and of one young girl in particular, triggers a chain of events that will plunge both women back into their harrowing pasts. Haunting, lyrical, and shocking in its graphic re-creation of the traumas that shape two families, Silver and Salt is a brilliantly incisive novel about the destructive consequences of love and betrayal.
