It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Memory Trees by Kali Wallace + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE MEMORY TREES by Kali Wallace, releasing October 10, 2017 from Katherine Tegen Books. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Kali:

Hello, YABC readers! I am so happy to have a chance to share the lovely cover of The Memory Trees with you. This is a book about mothers and daughters, families and feuding, and dark secrets from long ago, all set in an apple orchard in the mountains of Vermont. I'm not the most visually-inclined person, so the only ideas I had for the artist and designer were along the lines of, "IDK, maybe some trees? Like, real trees? Or family trees? Trees?" Luckily, they didn't need my help. Artist Connie Gabbert and designer Heather Daugherty put together a cover that is so beautiful I've been sneaking looks at it for weeks to reassure myself that it's real. I love that it's a little bit spooky (the sly hints of red! the bare branches! the flame!), a little bit old-fashioned in a classy kind of way, and an absolutely perfect match to the story and atmosphere of the book. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

~Kali Wallace (THE MEMORY TREES, Katherine Tegen Books)

About the Book

Sorrow Lovegood's life has been shaped by the stories of her ancestors: brave, resilient women who have lived for generations on a capricious apple orchard in Vermont. Sorrow and her family take pride in their land and its strange history. Their offbeat way of living may be ridiculed by the townspeople--especially their neighbors, the Abrams family--but for the first eight years of her life, the orchard is Sorrow's whole world.

Then one winter night everything changes. Sorrow's sister Patience is tragically killed. Their mother suffers a mental breakdown. Sorrow is sent to live with her father in Miami, away from the only home she’s ever known.

Now sixteen, Sorrow's memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy; even the details of her sister's death are unclear. She returns to the orchard for the summer, determined to learn more about her troubled childhood and the family she left eight years ago. Why has her mother kept her distance over the years? What actually happened the night Patience died? Is the orchard trying to tell her something, or is she just imagining things?

The Memory Trees is 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.

I love when there are family secrets because it makes for a great drama and mystery. The cover is okay but I think I like the story a lot more.
