Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Salted With Fire by Nancy LaRonda Johnson is about the transformation of a woman from worldly to spiritual values. It is a sort of confessional theme with the author letting you peek into some of her most personal stories and episodes in her life. Flash fiction always has its own appeal and the twelve poems in the book are soul-searching ones. They reveal the subconscious mind of the writer. I found the book spiritually uplifting. It is not always that one decides to change. Changing is not easy, especially from being worldly to being spiritual. During the time when the world around you is so negative, it requires a lot of mental strength and determination to go through it. So this book is highly motivating and inspiring. Another aspect of the book I liked was the discussion at the end of each chapter which explains to the reader in detail what the stories mean in terms of the Bible. The discussions are short and crisp but they aid the reader in coming to a better understanding of both the prose and poetry.  The book is also a nice mix of poetry and prose. They both reveal the inner struggle and the emotional upheavals of the author. The author's fearlessness in revealing her emotions should be appreciated. It is not always one gets to read confessional books where the author speaks about themselves. The combination of prose and poetry gives a kind of credibility to the author's emotional state of mind. On the whole, a very inspiring book.
