This is the diary of Mallory Smith; a remarkably bright, active, spirited women who battled with cystic fibrosis from age 15 until her death at 25. In spite of her disease Mallory was determined to live a meaningful and happy life. In her diaries, she recorded her most personal thoughts and struggles, leaving instructions to her mother to publish them posthumously. What emerges in her writing is a powerful and inspiring portrait of a brave young woman and a blossoming writer with hopes and goals for her future, who refused to be defined by disease. Salt In My Soul is a beautifully crafted, poignant tribute to a short life well lived. It is a call for us to “Live Happy” by embracing our own lives as fully as possible.
