Description

Christina Baker Kline’s best selling A Piece of the World in paperback.

To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine.  The only daughter in a family of sons, Christina is tied to her home by health and circumstance, and seems destined for a small life.  Instead, she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration, and the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World.

Told in evocative and lucid prose, A Piece of the World is a story about the burdens and blessings of family history, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy.
