Author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline will pre-release her new novel inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s mysterious and iconic painting “Christina’s World” at this year’s Festival. Her new book, A Piece of the World, will be available for the first time at the Savannah Book Festival – before it goes on sale nationally next week.
As she did in her beloved smash bestseller Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history. Bringing into focus the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait, she vividly imagines the life of a woman with a complicated relationship to her family and her past, and a special bond with one of our greatest modern artists. 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.
Christina Baker Kline is the author of five novels, including the #1 New York Times bestseller Orphan Train. Her other novels include Bird in Hand, The Way Life Should Be, Desire Lines, and Sweet Water.
