Amy Andrews

 

Love and Salt

 

This new memoir in letters tells the story of a spiritual friendship between two women. When Amy and Jess first began exchanging letters eight years ago, they had no idea where this antiquated practice might lead or what they would write. They only knew they were both seeking God, they both struggled with persistent doubt, and it would be better to seek and struggle together. They never would have guessed the story they entered. When they faced tragedy, they did it together--their correspondence was their tether in the darkness. Raw and intimate, humorous and poetic, their letters are a memoir in real time and reveal deeply personal and profound accounts of conversion, motherhood, friendship, and grief. Amy Andrews is a recipient of the Annie Dillard Award for Creative Nonfiction and teaches mathematics at Northwestern University. She lives in Evanston with her husband and children but lived in Andersonville when the letters in this book were being written. Refreshments will be served.
