About this title


On a bitterly cold Edmonton day, Lorie Miseck's sister disappeared. Nearly two weeks later, a man out in the deep freeze of December on a trivial errand made a horrible discovery.

A Promise of Salt traces these horrific events and their far-reaching effects with grace, sensitivity, and courage. But this is by no means merely the retelling of a terrible story. Instead it is a poignant journey through a dark time, interspersed with fond memories and bittersweet reflection. It is the portrait of souls badly injured, the narrative of a family pushed to the limits of human endurance

A Promise of Salt is a unique and unforgettable experience, a graceful and compelling text, and an at once heartbreaking and uplifting testament to the power of love and family.
