From the Back Cover:

Ellen Guppy is the reluctant heroine of Ethel Wilson’s final novel, LOVE AND SALT WATER. Saddened by a painful childhood, Ellen has adopted a skeptical independence and learned too well to hold her heart in reserve. But, as the novel unfolds, Ellen undergoes something of a sea-change, learning to accept love along with the sorrow that is rarely far from love.

First published in 1956, LOVE AND SALT WATER is a mature and, at times, disturbing synthesis of Ethel Wilson’s major themes: the interdependence of human lives, the strange alchemy of chance, and the healing illumination of love.
