Description
A spellbinding story about a family of women separated by oceans, generations and war, but connected by something much greater-- the gift of wings. Prudence Eleanor Vilkas was born with a pair of wings molded to her back. Considered a birth defect, her wings were surgically removed, leaving only the ghost of them behind. Growing up in Los Vientos, Florida Prudence meets her long-estranged Lithuanian grandfather and discovers a miraculous lineage beating and pulsing with the past Lituanian bird-women. ABOVE US ONLY SKY is the story of Prudence and the Vilkas women as the novel spans centuries. Most of all, it is a story of moral understanding between the old and young; a story of survival, and most importantly about where we belong in the world.

display_description "On March 29, 1973, Prudence Eleanor Vilkas was born with a pair of wings molded to her back. Considered a birth defect, her wings were surgically removed, leaving only the ghost of them behind. At [sixteen] years old ... Prudence meets her long-estranged Lithuanian grandfather and discovers a miraculous lineage beating and pulsing with past Lithuanian bird-women, storytellers with wings dragging the dirt, survivors perched on radio towers, lovers lit up like fireworks, and heroes disguised as everyday men and women. Prudence sets forth on a quest to discover her ancestors, to grapple with wings that only one other person can see, and ultimately, to find out where she belongs"--Amazon.com.
