Love and Salt Air

by Lisa Hartley

Lisa’s book is a heart map of loss and healing based on her life on the West Coast. It is part memoir, part companion through grief—always thoughtful and compelling.

Love and Salt Air weaves a delicate story from Lisa’s experience of her mother’s death from stomach cancer to her work as a celebrant supporting grieving clients with ritual and ceremony. It is at once a heartfelt tale and a guidebook for all who are facing the death of a loved one.
