A Piece Of The World
For decades, Christina Olson's
whole world has been a rocky,
windswept point on the coast of
Maine, the farmhouse her ancestors
fled to from the Salem witch trials.
A world she fears she will never
leave. As a girl, farm life asked more
of Christina than it did her family,
her wasting limbs turning every
task into a challenge. But the very
tenacity that strengthened her may
dash her chances for a life beyond
her chores and extinguish her hopes
for love. Years pass, and Christina's
solitude is broken by the arrival of
Andrew Wyeth, a young artist who
is fixated on the isolated farmhouse.
In Christina he will discover more
than a kindred spirit; for him, she will become a muse like no other...

Carys is someone he might want
to stay with long-term, which is
impossible in this new world. As
their relationship plays out, the
connections between their time on Earth and their present dilemma in space become clear. When their air ticks dangerously low, one is offered the chance of salvation – but who will take it?
