To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family's remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than 20 years, she was host to and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the 20th century.

This book was awful, I couldn't relate to any of the characters. The protagonist is this miserable bitter old cat lady who gave up on life long ago and seems to want everyone else to be as lonely and as miserable as she is. If you took out all of the "noontime meal" and "Al packing his pipe" descriptions this book would have been 100 pages shorter. Truly awful book, waste of time reading it. Don't bother if you haven't read it yet. Very disappointed
