    Hi Susan,

    I’ve already written you to tell you how much I loved Up From the Blue, but I also wanted to let you know how poignant I found this quote from the interview:

    “In the end, I think of this book as a love letter from one little girl to the person who believes she’s caused irreparable harm to her. And it’s Tillie’s chance to tell her that she’s okay–that her childhood was richer than the sorrow it contained–that there was also joy there, and affection and friendship and laughter.”

    And that is why this book has touched so many people!

    Dear Susan, that was a lovely interview…it’s wonderful how you’ve tapped into a wider story: that of the people who feel you’ve told their tale as well as Tillie’s. And it’s a reminder of how beautiful fiction can be when it’s summoned from our collective hearts.

    Jim
