Set in Long Beach, California, beginning in the 1970s, "The Salt God's Daughter" follows Ruthie and her older sister Dolly as they struggle for survival in a place governed by an enchanted ocean and exotic folklore. Guided by a mother ruled by magical, elaborately-told stories of the full moons, which she draws from The Old Farmer's Almanac, the two girls are often homeless, often on their own, fiercely protective of each other, and unaware of how far they have drifted from traditional society as they carve a real life from their imagined stories. Imbued with a traditional Scottish folktale and hints of Jewish mysticism, "The Salt God's Daughter" examines the tremulous bonds between sisters and the enduring power of maternal love --a magical tale that presents three generations of extraordinary women who fight to transcend a world that is often hostile to those who are different.
