(From the publisher):
Judith Whitman believes in the sort of love that "picks you up in Akron, Ohio, and sets you down in Rio de Jenerio." But life took her to Los Angeles.
Before her marriage to a banker, before the birth of a daughter, before her career as a film editor, Judith was seventeen and living in the vastness of Nebraska. There she met Willy Blunt, a carpenter whose pale blue eyes and easy smile awakened in Judith the rekless girl he alone imagined her to be. Marrying Willy seemed a natural thing to promise, but acceptance to a prestigious university carried Judith away from the plains and into a bigger, richer world. She didn't look back.
Twenty-five years later, Judith's sturdy-seeming marriage is suddenly hazy with secrets, and her thoughts drift back to the times when she and Willy escaped to a small world where sunlight seemed always to fall from a softer angle. Now she sits near a phone with a number in her hand and reaches out toward the man who long ago believed it when she said she loved him.
"To Be Sung Underwater," is the surprising and heartbreaking love story of a woman trying-almost too late-to remember the man who could never forget.
