Charlotte Runcie’s SALT ON YOUR TONGUE is an artfully woven tapestry of history, mythology, personal essay, and reflection that dives into the historical and literary ties between women and the sea. The book is framed by Runcie’s pregnancy with her first child and her own obsession with the ocean. As her child grows, Runcie visits the weathered seascapes and portside ruins of Scotland, while revisiting the importance of sirens, and fishwives, ancient saints, and seabirds. This book is a calm in the storm of womanhood, a peaceful place to contemplate all that that means.
