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 past Lithuanian 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 mutual understanding between the old and young; a story of survival, and, most importantly, a story about where we belong in the world. Download and start listening now!
