  A Reviewer Writes -

Like a delicate flower blooming out of rock, Love, Tears, and Salt  is the epic account of life force overcoming monumental adversity. 

This mesmerizing book traces one woman's incredible journey from the Spanish Civil War and Nazi-Vichy Morocco to refugee status in Mexico and eventual immigration to the U.S. 

The cruel misunderstanding of Catholic, Jewish and Muslim heritages represented by members of her family gives insight into today's frightful headlines out of the Middle East.  

This eloquent author, who retired from public education, lost one daughter to complications of epilepsy (SUDEP). The youngest daughter’s estrangement from the family has caused a great deal of pain.

Nadia and her husband now dedicate their life to raising awareness and fundraising for research on new treatments for seizure disorders via an Endowed Academic Chair at UCLA and a Foundation. This brilliant and compassionate work is a must read.
