writing her best seller Orphan Train as well as her own experiences growing up in Maine, Kline has created an authentic portrayal of Christina Olson, the real life inspiration for Christina s World, one of Andrew Wyeth s most iconic paintings Wyeth and his young wife summered near the Olson homestead between the 1930s and 1960s, and he often used Olson and her brother as models in his work In this novel, Christina s story is told in first person and includes flashbacks to help readers better understand how differently her life might have turned out if not for her circumstances Christina and her brother Al sacrifice chances of finding true love and, in her case, the opportunity to become a teacher, because they have to keep the family farm running and care for their ailing parents Day
