Everyone loved Tiffany Baker’s debut novel, “The Little Giant of Aberdeen County” and now her second is available, “The Gilly Salt Sisters.” The Gilly sisters grew up on their family’s salt farm on Cape Cod. Jo falls for the town’s wealthiest bachelor, Whit Turner, but it is Claire – heartbroken over her high school sweetheart – who marries him and leaves. Jo is forced to stay behind and keep the family business going. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the family salt farm with the last person she would have chosen – her husband’s pregnant mistress.
