The Weight We Carry

Who's Publishing What: The Weight We Carry

A heartbreaking and emotional story of the toll that health crises can have on an entire family, Christina Consolino’s newest novel, The Weight We Carry (Black Rose Writing), reminds us of the fine line between reliance and independence, tending and mothering, and love and obligation.

"The Weight We Carry actually made me feel lighter — Consolino beautifully captures the frustrating, heartbreaking reality of dealing with aging, failing parents, but does so with a story that lifted, rather than burdened me. I fell in love with these relatable, flawed, struggling characters, and appreciated the lovely humor in these pages, too. Anyone trapped in the sandwich generation will feel seen," says Katrina Kittle, author of Morning in This Broken World.

Christina’s debut novel, Rewrite the Stars, was named one of 10 finalists for the Ohio Writers' Association Great Novel Contest 2020. She is a former senior editor at the online journal Literary Mama and freelance edits both fiction and nonfiction.
