Author Kathryn Rishoff has a flair for the dramatic, specializing in psychological thriller fiction. Her first book, The Wrong Daughter, received high praise on her Amazon.com e-store. Coming off the heels of this first novel, Rishoff again reaches into the depths of the human psyche with her new novel, The Weight of it All.
The story revolves around a central character, Lyndsey, who is kidnapped from a mall parking lot after shopping. The story from here takes a wicked and somewhat surprising turn. Assumed dead, Lyndsey turns up, hogtied and in a pig costume. If this were not embarrassing enough, she has undergone a rather surprising transformation.
Rishoff tackles more than just psychology in this new book. She is taking a closer look at society’s current trends in body image, health and bullying. It also takes a critical look at the role of a woman as mother, wife and member of society’s elite wealthy.
“There is so much emphasis put on certain people to look and act a certain way. This is why I approach some of these concepts in my book. It is a hope The Weight of it All is a catalyst to look deeply into what people perceive and think,” said Rishoff.
Amazon reviews have raved about the book and its characters. Rishoff makes Lyndsey and the rest of the characters in the book come alive. Additionally, Rishoff is able to create characteristics in the characters. Readers will be able to make real connections and build a strong sense of empathy with Lyndsey as she struggles to return to her place in society.
