As the Spark Flies Upward is a novel centered around four generations of a family living on the banks of a river in the Depression-era south. The story follows the lives of Grace Canton Kelley, her sister Athena, and their two best friends as they respond to the turmoil caused by an alcoholic, abusive stepfather and the poverty and dangers that surround their town. Grace, the meek, bookish second-born, grows up in the shadow of her magical, beautiful, yet dangerous elder sister;her timidity and lack of self-confidence are only surpassed by her passion to protect those she loves and the burden of responsibility she feels to hold her family together. The book visits the unspoken, unyielding bond of loyalty between siblings, yet highlights the stark contrast between Grace and Athena, shown perhaps most vividly by the way they ultimately deal with the abuse of their mother. Most of all, the book offers a poignant look at the problem of evil and its lasting reverberations within the intertwined fates of a family. As the Spark Flies Upward is a compelling story filled with love, laughter, pain, grief, vengeance, forgiveness, and hope.
