The Memory Child
Steena Holmes grew up in a small town in Canada and holds a Bachelors degree in Theology. In 2012 she received the Indie Excellence Award. She was inspired to write Finding Emma after experiencing a brief moment of horror when she’d thought her youngest daughter was missing. She currently lives in Calgary with her husband and three daughters and loves to wake up to the Rocky Mountains each morning.
When Brian finds out that his wife, Diane, is pregnant, he is elated. He's been patiently waiting for twelve years to become a father. But Diane has always been nervous about having children because of her family's dark past. The timing of the pregnancy also isn't ideal - Diane has just been promoted, and Brian is being called away to open a new London office for his company. Fast-forward one year: being a mother has brought Diane a sense of joy that she'd never imagined and she's head over heels for her new baby, Grace. But things are far from perfect: Brian has still not returned from London, and Diane fears leaving the baby for even a moment. As unsettling changes in those around Diane began to emerge, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. A woman's dark past collides head-on with her mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama.
