A Piece of the World

I am so exited about my review of “A Piece of the World” by Christina Baker Kline! This book is about Christina Olson, the women in the painting by Andrew Wyeth entitled Christina’s World (currently on display The Museum of Modern Art - if you’re in NYC please go see this painting for me!) I was only vaguely aware of Andrew Wyeth through his more notable works, but I had never heard of Christina Olson. I loved hearing the story of her life and her relationship with Andrew Wyeth, I’m certain you’ll enjoy it too.

Rules of Civility

I found this novel by Amor Towles on a list of "unputdownable" books compiled by Modern Mrs. Darcy - and this book was definitely unputdownable. It is about a young secretary on Wall Street trying to navigate life, love and NYC in 1938. Also, who can resist the glamorous 1930s fashion on the cover? 😉 It is a beautifully written book, so I'm excited to read the author's most recent novel, A Gentleman in Moscow.
