In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be. Jo, a fierce and quiet loner, is devoted to the mysteries of her family's salt farm, while Claire is popular, pretty, and yearns to flee the salt at any cost. But the Gilly land hides a dark legacy that proves impossible to escape. Although the community half-suspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn't stop Whit Turner, the town's wealthiest bachelor, from forcing his way into their lives. It's Jo who first steals Whit's heart, but it is Claire-heartbroken over her high school sweetheart-who marries him. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband's pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. What the Gilly sisters learn about each other, the land around them, and the power of the salt, will not only change each of their lives forever, it will also alter Gilly history for good.

"Jo and Claire Gilly are sisters who are blessed and cursed by the magical legacy of their family's New England salt farm. The story follows them from youth to old age as they struggle to accept the power of the salt. As part of the story, the listener hears how Dee, a confused teen with a spunky attitude, arrives in town and changes the sisters' lives forever. Narrator Angela Brazil gives an acceptable reading but doesn't capture the magical essence of the story. The listener is often drawn out of the story by misplaced emphasis on words, a slight nasal tone, and an awareness of the narrator at work. However, the well-drawn characters, surprising secrets revealed in every chapter, and sumptuous language make this a story worth listening to. M.M.G. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
