This is an unusual story about a small town in Cape Cod. The story centers around two estranged sisters, Claire and Jo. Their family farm, Salt Creek Farm, produces all of the salt for the town and the surrounding areas, and the salt believed to have unexplained powers. Every restaurant must have bowls of salt on all of the tables, and every grocery store must stock it or else they are doomed to fail. Every year, the town gathers for a bonfire and one of the sisters throws salt on the flame - if the flame turns blue there is a good year to come, red means love, and black is bad news for the town. Secrets, scandals and a beautiful setting keep the story moving and engaging.
