    This book not only took me through five generations of strong Cuban and Mexican women but also through the memories of five generations of women in my own family Some of the things in this book were hard to read I would have liked to see less trauma and sadness and happiness and beauty That's something i struggle with when reading about culture What's too much and what's not enough of the good and bad? We are a force We are than we think we areThank you for the ARC

    Of Women and Salt by Gabriela Garcia ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I cannot stop thinking about Of Women and Salt The novel tells the story of five generations of Cuban and Cuban American women and the challenges each one faced from political turmoil to abuse to addiction Intersecting with the lives of the modern women now living in Miami are those of Gloria and Ana a mother and daughter from El Salvador who get forcibly removed by ICE Through them we get a different view of the immigrant experience as Gloria and Ana are placed in detention and deported from the country forced to make a new life for themselves in Mexico before Ana attempts the harrowing journey back to the StatesI finished this short novel in almost one sitting and it was so truly stunning that it’s hard to process all of my thoughts The story is much bigger than the characters on the page Only referred to by their first names these women represent than just themselves While their stories are told in such rich specific detail they are universal they can be anybody any immigrant who has fought for a new life in a new country But it’s also much than a story about immigration It’s a story of love of family of determination of ideas The women in this novel are a powerful force as are all of the real life women that these characters embodyI’m so glad sportschicreads on Instagram proposed this as a buddy read because I need somebody to walk me through these garbled thoughts as I process this book and thank you to flatironbooks for the #gifted ARC This is one of my new favorite pieces of Latinx literature and I can guarantee it will be all over bookstagram after its release in April 2021
