Publisher's summary

In the coastal town of Alden, Maine, Hope and Jack Kelly have settled down to a life of wedded bliss. They have a beautiful family, a growing lobster business, and the Salt House - an oceanfront cottage they're renovating into their dream home. But tragedy strikes when their young daughter doesn't wake up from her afternoon nap, taking her last breath without making a sound.

A year later each member of the Kelly family navigates the world on their own private island of grief. Hope spends hours staring at her daughter's ashes, unable to let go. Jack works to the point of exhaustion in an attempt to avoid his crumbling marriage. Their daughters, Jess and Kat, struggle to come to terms with the loss of their younger sister while watching their parents fall apart. But when Jack's fishing territory is threatened, emotions ignite, and the result will either tear the Kelly family apart or bring them back together.

Told in alternating voices, The Salt House is a gorgeously written heartbreaking yet hopeful debut.

It's a good book.

I really enjoyed it. It's a little bit sad and you can really feel with and for the characters. But it has such a happy ending.
