Up from the Blue

(2010)
A novel by

 
 
Tillie Harris's life is in disarray - her husband is away on business, the boxes in her new home aren't unpacked, and the telephone isn't even connected yet. Though she's not due for another month, sudden labor pains force Tillie to reach out to her estranged father for help, a choice that means facing the painful memories she's been running from since she was a little girl.

An extraordinary debut from a talented new voice, Up from the Blue untangles the year in Tillie's life that changed everything: 1975, the year her mother disappeared.



Praise for this book

"Beautiful and maddening, hopeful and condemning, simple, yet like a knot that takes a lifetime to untangle... A heartbreaking, rewarding story that still haunts me." - Jamie Ford

"A haunting tale... This is not a book you'll soon forget." - Sara Gruen
