Sara | 15 comments First and foremost, let's discuss the title and what it connotates for :D

dianis. | 509 comments Well... It certainly looks like it will have an important meaning in the book. It looks like an analogy, what do you think?

dianis. | 509 comments That's a good description. Yeah, it seems like it would be a significant metaphor in the book.
Sadly, I haven't been able to read much, but I'm dying to start.

Sara | 15 comments well, in my opinion, the word " salt " connotes for liveliness and life necessity and life-giving forces. While the word sea connotes for beauty, serenity, peace, depth and secrets. So I agree with you both that this metaphor will be related in the novel to a great extent. I think the whole title can be a metaphor for bringing life to deeply hidden secrets.

Sara | 15 comments I also noticed in the book cover that the overwhelming theme will be winter, which symbolises a period where everyone is in greater danger than before. So this suggests that revealing those secrets will pose a threat to the main characters.
