While reeling from the after-effects of a painful relationship with a married man, English professor Cara Heming risks everything and marries Diego, a Spanish man she has just met.
As she helps her new husband adjust to life in New York, Cara struggles to balance her demanding job and the needs of her demented mother and depressed father. Frustrated by Cara’s focus on her parents and her work, Diego transforms into an angry, jealous, and paranoid partner. Far from perfect herself, puritanically inclined Cara harbors biases that inflame Diego’s rage. When he and Cara’s mother grow increasingly vicious, Cara must join forces with her timid father, who surprises her. Trying to find her way out of the darkness, Cara must fight to survive the consequences of her mistakes.
The Memory Hive is the compelling tale of a woman’s journey of tragic errors, terrifying abuse, and growing resilience after she marries a Spanish man she barely knows.
