Love & Salt: A Spiritual Friendship Shared in Letters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith met in a creative writing class in graduate school, they both confessed to writing about God. They bonded one night while reading the Book of Ruth and came to truly understand the unlikely friendship of Ruth and Naomi. In these two Old Testament women, they witnessed a beautiful spiritual friendship and a way of walking with one another toward God.

But how could they travel this path together when they would be separated by distance and time and leading busy lives as they established marriages and careers? They decided to write letters to each other—at first, for each day of Lent, but those days extended into years. Their letters became a memoir in real time and reveal deeply personal and profound accounts of conversion, motherhood, and crushing tragedy; through it all, their faith and friendship sustained them.

Told through the timeless medium of letters—in prose that is raw and intimate, humorous and poetic—Love & Salt is at its core the emotional struggle of how one spiritual friendship is formed and tested in tragedy, tempered and proven in hope.

Synopsis:

Love & Salt portrays friendship as women have always known it—as something serious, sacred, and redemptive—and tells the story of a spiritual friendship between two women, based on their shared exploration of God. When Amy Andrews and Jessica Mesman Griffith met in a creative writing workshop at graduate school, they both confessed to writing about God. They became fast friends.

But how could they travel this path together, when they would be separated by distance and time, and leading busy lives as they established marriages and careers? They decided on writing letters to each other—at first, for each day of Lent, but those days extended into years. Their letters became a memoir in real time, revealing deeply personal and profound accounts of conversion, motherhood, and crushing tragedy. 

Told through the timeless medium of letters, Love & Salt is at its core the story of how one special friendship is formed, tested, and ultimately strengthened—and how God is both the source and summit of that relationship.
