Blending fact with fiction, this moving story brings to life the woman in Andrew Wyeth's 1948 painting Christina's World. We see her at the bottom of the hill, looking toward the farmhouse. She seems thin and fragile. We don't know if she can walk up that hill. All we know is that her focus takes our eye up to that building and perhaps makes us wonder who Christina was. That is what inspired Ms. Kline to write her moving tale of a woman with inner strength even when life was not kind. Inflicted from childhood with a debilitating disease that made it increasingly difficult to walk, Christina lived her entire life on the family farm in Cushing, Maine. Her friendship with Wyeth --he spent his summers in Maine--and the story of this courageous woman will stay with you.
