    looked from him

    I am reading Academy Street by Mary Costello.

    "They found themselves together again, a sphere of uncalm surrounding them. His silence was overbearing, a force field, sucking everything out of her. He raised his head and looked from him, as if nothing had happened. There was an eerie depth to him, an inwardness that was infinite. She thought he was not in command of it."

    Please tell me what is meaning of underlined words. Should I read 'looked from him' as 'look around' or 'look far away'. Thanks!

    Re: looked from him

    It sounds most unnatural to me. I assume it means 'looked away'.

    It looks like an editing error.
    I am not a teacher.
