Join Book Club Girl (of the blog http://www.bookclubgirl.com) as she welcomes Susan Henderson, Pushcart Prize winner and founder of Lit Park (http://www.litpark.com) to discuss her debut novel Up From the Blue. 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. Up from the Blue deftly portrays a family with contradictions we can all relate to—it’s beautiful and maddening, hopeful and condemning, simple, yet like a knot that takes a lifetime to untangle. You will love it completely, even as it hurts you…it’s a heartbreaking, rewarding story that still haunts me.” — Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
