The author of the New York Times bestselling The Little Giant of Aberdeen County returns with a magic-tinged tale of dreams, family secrets, and betrayals on a New England salt farm.

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.

Quotes & Awards

  • Tiffany Baker has done it again: The Gilly Salt Sisters is both deliciously, magically, strange and heartrendingly familiar, a beautiful and bewitching story of the elements that bind us to each other-family, love, loss, and memory. I was pulled into its world on the very first page and wanted to stay forever. Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters
  • Like a delicious meal, Tiffany Baker offers up a wonderful blend of devastating family secrets, loves lost and found, revenge, forgiveness, and more than a pinch of long-held family magic. Kathleen Kent, author of The Heretic's Daughter and The Wolves of Andover
  • The Gilly Salt Sisters captivates from its opening paragraph-a story of rivalry, love, and unredeemable greed set against a Cape Cod salt marsh that demands hard work and gives luck (good and bad) in return. Baker's scenes and characters are rich and compelling, touched with a magical realism which, like salt, enhances their flavor. Fans of Alice Hoffman will rejoice at finding Tiffany Baker. Erica Bauermeister, author of The School of Essential Ingredients
  • “The well-drawn characters, surprising secrets revealed in every chapter, and sumptuous language make this a story worth listening to.”


  • Tiffany Baker's novel has grit and polish and some salt of its own. It's a beautifully written tale about the resourceful and determined connection of women. The Gilly Salt sisters are a brackish bunch-definitely my kind of people. Brunonia Barry, author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places
  • “A heartfelt tale of family relationships, small-town drama, and new opportunities…The imagery of Cape Cod is gorgeously rendered, leaving the reader with a fully immersive picture of the insular village…Readers of Anita Shreve, Maeve Binchy, and Alice Hoffman should enjoy this poignant, lush, and well-written tale of family secrets, revenge, forgiveness, and connections not easily severed.”


Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Karin Bartimole | 2/18/2014

    " I found this book to be a disappointment, after enjoying Ms Baker's first novel, The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, so much. For me, The Gilly Salt Sisters were and their story were predictable. I kept expecting more, but it never delivered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Diane S. | 2/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. The Tuners and the Gillys, old family residents of Prospect, a village in Cape Cod. The Gillys belong to the salt, salt is the magical element in this book that ties everything together, and the Turners want to own the whole town. Loved the character development in this novel, how they change with the circumstances and the trials they face. Shifting alliances, secrets revealed and tragedies, kept me reading to the end. Love magical realism when it is done well and this one certainly was. Will appeal to fans of Alice Hoffman, Aimee Bender and Sarah Addison Allen. Now I need to read Baker's first book. "

    " I loved this book. Just a perfect novel (for women... don't recommend to guys). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by chrisa | 2/1/2014

    " I stayed with this book until the last 100 pages and then I decided enough was enough. A sense of impending doom hangs over every word. I kept reading as the author's use of words and language is interesting, and I hoped that the characters would become smarter, and maybe even strive harder for happiness in their lives. After skipping ahead and skimming the last hundred pages I gave up.... "
