Up From the Blue

Tillie Harris stands alone in her new home looking at boxes she wants to unpack when she begins to feel labor pains. Feeling desperate, she calls her estranged father for help. He stays with her at the hospital trying to reassure her that everything will be okay.

Having him in the room with her brings back many painful memories from her childhood, and a young Tillie tells us the story of her life with her brother, her controlling, military father and her flighty, mystical mother. One day her mother disappears without saying a word to Tillie, but Tillie never gives up on finding her.

This is Susan Henderson's debut novel.
