Above Us Only Sky is the epic tale of two women separated by oceans, generations and war, but connected by something much greater—the gift of wings. In 1973, Prudence Eleanor is born with wings in Nashville, Tennessee. Considered a birth defect, her wings are excised shortly after her birth, leaving the ghost of them behind.
Living on the eastern coast of the Atlantic, the unexpected and unimaginable bubble up from the depths to confront Prudence: She meets her Lithuanian grandfather and discovers a miraculous lineage beating and pulsing with past Lithuanian birds: storytellers with wings dragging the dirt, survivors perched on radio towers, lovers lit up like fireworks and heroes disguised as everyday men and women.
Sometimes where we think we are born is not even close. It is in finding our birthplace that we have a chance at becoming whole.
