After the death of her fiancé, Frankie flees her large Italian-American family for the solitude of her fiancé’s family cabin. While Frankie’s family wants to comfort her, the fiancé’s mother demands Frankie leave the cabin. Frankie defies the order and begins working through her grief as she meets a few of her new neighbors. Season of Salt and Honey is a tearjerker for sure with wonderful moments of community and family mixed with the devastation Frankie feels over the loss of Alex. There are some surprising developments as well which keep the story moving at a nice pace.
