INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“A brilliantly imagined fictional memoir of the woman in the famed Wyeth painting, ‘Christina’s World.’ Utterly transportive.”
“A graceful, moving and powerful demonstration of what can happen when a fearless literary imagination combines with an inexhaustible curiosity about the past and the human heart.”
“The author’s insightful, evocative prose brings Christina’s singular perspective and indomitable spirit to life.”
“A gorgeous novel, both heartbreaking and life-affirming. By focusing on this one particular piece of the world, Kline has accomplished something grand.”
“Painterly, sensuous, and sympathetic.”
“The inscrutable figure in Wyeth’s Christina’s World is our American Mona Lisa, and Kline has pulled back the veil to imagine her rich story.”
