Weight of Memory
Kristina Brune has loved books for as long as she can remember and has put her passion for words to work as a copywriter and editor. She’s worked with businesses and entrepreneurs around the world, including digital influencers, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and one of the largest investor-owned utilities in the Midwest. Her work has been published in Forbes, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, Inc.com, and various other publications. Kristina lives outside of St. Louis, Missouri with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. When she’s not busy being her kids’ personal shuttle to hockey, baseball, softball, and rehearsals, she always has her nose in a book and is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her laundry fairy. Weight of Memory is her first novel.
Lara Kemp’s brother is dead. She’s a wife and a mother but she’s lost in her grief and far too many days she finds herself curled up on her closet floor, unable to function. She’s miserable and worst of all, she’s lost all her memories of her brother and can only remember him through the stories other people share. When Lara comes close to taking her own life, she and her husband take steps to get her the help she needs. They go on a much-needed visit to Lara’s aunt in the small town of Grafton, Illinois, on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. In search of something—anything—to help her overcome the pain and get back to her normal, unremarkable life, Lara stumbles upon an old book in an antique shop. The book tells the story of a woman from a wealthy family in the 19th century, whose brother died in a fishing accident. Lara finds comfort in the book and her life slowly begins to return to a new normal. Months later, she reads the book again, but this time, the book is different. Lara thinks the book has changed. It appears to be small changes at first, and Lara chalks it up to just misremembering. But as she reads on, the story takes a dark, sinister turn and is nothing like the story she read the first time. Soon, the terrifying things happening in the book begin to mirror the strange happenings in Lara’s own life. With her husband and almost everyone around her convinced her experiences are a byproduct of her stress and grief, Lara is convinced it’s real. Based on what happened in the book, Lara begins to hope it might hold the secret to recovering her memories of her brother, so she sets out to find out more. Lara discovers that the story is real and that she and the women in her family are connected to the book in ways she never could have guessed. Refusing to back down in the face of the increasingly terrifying things happening around her, Lara enlists the help of her Aunt Maisie and her friend Maryn, along with Amabel, a mysterious store owner in Grafton, to figure out what the book is and what it can do. What Lara doesn’t know is that all three of them know more about the book than they’ve let on. When Lara’s life is endangered by the magic fighting its way out of the book, the women come clean about what they know. They discover the magic contained in the book is uncontrollable and they have no idea what might be waiting on the other side. The women devise a plan to destroy the book. Ultimately, Lara will have to choose between doing the safe, right thing and taking the coven’s advice…or the impossible, unbelievable thing that would allow her what she wants most in the world—a chance to connect with her brother again and get her memories back.
