Unique in structure, Ursula, Under begins with two-year-old Ursula Wong falling down an abandoned mine shaft in Michigan. While the story of her rescue occurs in the present, the story of her ancestors – her mother’s family is Finnish, and her father’s family is Chinese – is told in alternating chapters, starting as far back as the third century B.C. and continuing forward to the present day. Ursula, Under is a marvel of storytelling; readers will find it nearly impossible to resist empathizing with Ingrid Hill’s characters, diverse as they are.
