The Memory Box
Caroline, the mother of twin girls, is not totally onboard with fulfilling the role of a stay-at-home Mom. She is particularly annoyed with Gabrielle, who has a habit of ranking other stay-at-home Moms in Lincoln Elementary School by the amount of interesting hits their names generate in a Google search. Too bad Caroline’s search for her own name results in only two boring hits, all related to the seemingly trivial contributions she has made to her community. Things go haywire with her life on the day she decides to type her maiden name into Google and finds some news that changes everything.
However, this simple tale is not exactly what the author Eva Lesko Natiello has in mind for the readers of The Memory Box, so be prepared to toss that suburban fairy tale away, grab on to the steering wheels, and hope that you get through this obstacle course with all of your mental faculties. Natiello’s character Caroline toys with the reader’s emotions and without your guard up, you will become a victim of her web of lies, becoming exposed. There is betrayal in the end. Eva Lesko Natiello shows tremendous talent and courage in her creation of a powerful dichotomy, reaching beyond boundaries.
