A Piece of the World 

by Christine Baker Kline, author of the Orphan Train.

…In this finely drawn novel, the author imagines what it was like to be Christina, consigned to a hard life running a farm even as her world gradually shrinks owing to a debilitating and mysterious ailment. Introduced to Wyeth by a family friend, Christina and her home inspire the artist. He visits daily, setting up a studio in an upstairs room. He admires her quick mind and perseverance. She appreciates his artistic talent and that he does not pity her. As Kline pieces together different eras of Christina’s life, her word portrait depicts a stubborn, determined woman. –Christine Perkins, Whatcom Cty. Lib. Syst., -Bellingham, WA © Copyright 2017.
