JANE JOHNSON is a British novelist, historian and publisher. She is the UK editor for Dean Koontz and George R.R. Martin, and as Jude Fisher has written the companions to Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movie trilogies.
"Jane Johnson has written a beautifully crafted story that paints a vivid picture and captures the imagination.... The reader can see the colours of sunsets, feel the grittiness of the sand, taste the spices in the bazaar and smell the camel hair blankets in the goatskin tents.... The Salt Road is a book you won't want to end, yet at the same time, you'll be yearning for a satisfying conclusion. This novel will not let you down." Liz Read, The Women's Post "The Salt Road, like all powerful stories, is about change.... For readers looking to experience a shifting, disappearing world, and to be introduced to an exotic culture with evocative descriptions, The Salt Road is an exhilarating ride. Part historic and part contemporary, with universal themes of betrayal, love, and the anguish caused by human greed, it has an ending rich and fulfilling enough for those who like all their questions answered." Linda Holeman, The Globe and Mail "Jane Johnson (The Tenth Gift) re-works her irresistible cross-cultural magic...in The Salt Road" More magazine
