Summary
This is the story behind Andrew Wyeth’s painting “Christina’s World.” As a young girl, Christina suffers from an diagnosed illness that causes her bones to twist and forces this malady to define the rest of her life and her world. This touching tale sheds light on the hardships of the early 20th century, and the struggle of physical handicap.
Critique
Kline crafts a touching tale, though sometimes a bit slow.
