Salt Dancers is at once a brilliant portrait of an
American family, a story of the secrets families
guard, and a moving account of one woman's
journey back to a past filled with elusive memories
and suppressed rage. Why did Julia's mother
disappear one day without so much as a word? How did
a loving father who taught her such a beautiful thing
as the salt dance become such a terrifying and abusive
presence? These are the questions which Julia
must confront when she returns to Spokane,
Washington, after an absence of twenty-three years.
Salt Dancers, a superbly written novel, is a poignant
and truthful chronicle of self-discovery and the
power of resurrection.
