All the Salt in the Sea
In her first year of medical school, Abby West’s goals for the future were derailed by an unexpected pregnancy. Reluctantly, she discarded her dream of becoming a physician in favor of being a wife to one. Nineteen years later, Abby discovers her powerful, well-connected husband has been keeping a secret— an eight-year-old son from an old affair.
Devastated by the betrayal, she flees to her grandmother’s hometown on the Amalfi coast. There, Abby meets Daniel Quinn, a former American soldier turned photographer. As she travels across Europe with him, she begins to imagine a new life, one without a controlling and unfaithful husband. Empowered by a newfound sense of freedom and courage, Abby returns to St. Augustine to settle things with her husband. But nothing goes as planned, and what awaits may very well destroy her.
“A sweeping novel that takes the reader from a malfunctioning coach on an Italian mountain top to Paris to Switzerland and to Saint Augustine, Florida. Full of heartbreak and longing, and romance, but also tinged with the distressing truth of how difficult it is to leave a relationship after abuse. “
“A captivating story with multifaceted characters who wrestle with an appalling, too-real situation. Harrow pulls us in as we escape vicariously through Europe, but don’t let that lull you. Danger and betrayal await to catapult you through chilling twists and turns.”
Jill Hannah Anderson, author of the To Hell and Back Club, Crazy Little Town Called Love, and A Life Unraveled, out March 2022
“I read it in one day. Couldn’t put it down.”
