"There had been a radio transmission, and the report of a wingman who managed to survive the encounter with three, then six, then nine Russian MIGs along the Yalu River, and finally: silence. A vast sky void of evidence. Void of life. And no sign of Charlie or his plane. It had to happen all the time, Violet knew, and the officers seemed hopeful that he might be found. But her heart was like that sky, and though she sounded it again and again, she knew he was gone from her and would not return." Is it possible to carry the suffering of our ancestors at a cellular level? To be locked into cycles of grief and the absence of resiliency...just by being born to those who have gone before us? Meg Carroll considers these questions as she weaves the story of her estranged grandmother Violet and her own into a ghostly tapestry that will either save or be the end of her. Either it is possible to change things as they are, or Meg is fated to manifest the madness of her raven-haired grandmother and the rest of the women in the Carroll clan. In the novel Bend the Blue Sky, Meg will live into the answers to her questions and know herself as ultimately powerful--or be the next in line to fall.
