Elite Daily choice for Books that will satisfy all readers

“With alternating chapters focusing on each family member’s thoughts and interactions, debut author Duffy eloquently displays the emotional complexities of a family going through the healing process.” – Library Journal

“An insightful, emotionally potent debut” – Booklist

“… a compelling examination of grief and the way loss threatens the lives of every family member. Though all the characters are vivid and memorable, I am especially drawn to the younger voices as they maneuver in the uncharted wake of their parents, attempting normal lives under conditions that are anything but.” -Jill McCorkle, NYT Bestselling author of Life After Life

“One of the best human portraits I’ve read in a novel—Lisa Duffy’s The Salt House masterfully depicts a family stuck in the cracks of unhealed wounds and profiles complex behavior with stunning clarity. You’ll need to make room on your keeper shelf for this beautiful debut.” Therese Walsh, author of The Moon Sisters

 “Lisa Duffy has burst on the scene with this at once heartbreaking and life affirming debut. A lyrical and beautifully written story about love, loss, forgiveness and moving forward, The Salt House confirms that Lisa Duffy is one to watch.” Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Lies and Other Acts of Love

“Lisa Duffy paints a realistic and heart-wrenching portrait of a family trying to move on from an unimaginable loss. Emotionally complex and as atmospheric as the rocky Maine shores where the story is set, THE SALT HOUSE reels you in and doesn’t let go until the final, satisfying page.” – Kristin Contino, author of The Legacy of Us
