Overview

Pushing Upward is a remarkable debut novel that will sweep you along on one woman’s unforgettable spiritual quest.

The year is 1974. While trying to eke out a living as an actress in L.A., 21-year-old Sandra Billings discovers the I Ching, the ancient Chinese oracle; and uses it as her GPS to navigate a torrid love affair, battle with demons of the past, and search for meaning and truth.

She places a fateful newspaper ad—Drama student in need of RM AND BRD in exchange for housekeeping—and encounters an assortment of outrageous and inappropriate individuals. But it is one unlikely stranger who will change the course of her life.

Events ultimately build to a stunning climax, where everything Sandra has gained is challenged by a poignant and surprising twist of fate . . .

 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Pushing Upward is brave writing, a young woman's journey toward her dreams, avoiding traps and falling into them, slipping back and finding the grace and will to go on—and so it reflects on our own journey and makes us braver, too.

-- Gerald Dipego, Screenwriter/Novelist, Phenomenon, Message in a Bottle, Instinct, The Forgotten

This love story captures the essence of a modern use of the I Ching in the most elegant and accurate way.

-- Paul O'Brien, Author of Visionary I-Ching, Founder of Tarot.Com and I-Ching.Com
