Product Description:

'Did Clara taste salty when I kissed her? She did. She tasted of mermaids of the sea.' Love Like Salt is a deeply affecting memoir beautifully and intelligently written. It is about mothers and daughters music and illness genes and inheritance writing and story-telling. It is about creating joy from the hand you've been dealt and following its lead - in this case to rural France where the author and her family lived for seven years. And back again. 'I had always written and until the birth of Clara I wrote for a living. Once I knew the Cystic Fibrosis gene had unfolded itself in our daughter's body like a paper flower meeting water I felt that to write even if I had had time or been able would have been to squander a kind of power which was needed for tending and nurturing. Every moment became a moment in which I protected my baby. Some of it I did in secret like a madwoman muttering spells. I thought of her as a candle cupping my hand around her.
