The Memory Trees Summary

The Memory Trees by Kali Wallace

A darkly magical novel about a mysterious family legacy, the bonds of sisterhood, and the strange and powerful ways we are shaped by the places we call home, from the critically acclaimed author of Shallow Graves. For the first eight years of her life, an unusual apple orchard in Vermont is Sorrow Lovegood's whole world. The land has been passed down through generations of brave, resilient women, and while their offbeat habits may be ridiculed by other townspeople-especially their neighbors, the Abrams family-Sorrow and her family take pride in its odd history. Then one winter night, an unthinkable tragedy changes everything. In the aftermath, Sorrow is sent to Miami to live with her father, away from the only home she's ever known. Now sixteen, Sorrow's memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy. She returns to the orchard for the summer, determined to learn more about her troubled childhood and the family she left eight years ago. But it soon becomes clear that some of her questions have difficult-even dangerous-answers. And there may be a price to pay for asking.

The Memory Trees Reviews

"A fast-paced story with an interesting hook, and a thoughtful look at what it means to be human versus what it means to be a monster. The end result is a superbly crafted debut bound to entrance." -- Booklist (starred review) on Shallow Graves "Kali Wallace has created a world that's both natural and unsettling ...and reminds us with Breezy's story that true terror is not a monster, but what lurks in the dark corners of human nature." -- Madeleine Roux, New York Times bestselling author of the Asylum series, on Shallow Graves "Constantly entertaining, intriguing, and suspenseful." -- Kirkus on Shallow Graves "A fast-paced ride through a dark, imaginative world." -- Mindy McGinnis, author of The Female of the Species, on Shallow Graves

About Kali Wallace

Kali Wallace, for most of her life, was going to be a scientist when she grew up. She studied geology in college, partly because she could get course credit for hiking and camping, and eventually earned a PhD in geophysics researching earthquakes in India and the Himalayas. Only after she had her shiny new doctorate in hand did she admit that she loved inventing imaginary worlds as much as she liked exploring the real one. She's from Colorado but now lives in Southern California. You can find her at www.kaliwallace.com and on Twitter @kaliphyte.
