A Piece of the World
by Christina Baker Kline
From the New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, a new novel of friendship, passion, and art, inspired by Andrew Wyeth's mysterious and iconic painting Christina's World. Using the portrait, Kline brings the painting to life in a beautiful story. Christina Olson's world was her family's remote farm in the coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations and increasingly affected by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for twenty years she was the muse and inspiration for the artist, Andrew Wyeth, who created one of the most iconic paintings in the middle of the 20th century. Kline excels once again at weaving together fact and fiction about a lesser-known part of American history.
A limited number of copies of A Piece of the World will be available in March for preregistered participants to borrow.
