In celebration of Orphan Train’s success as a #1 New York Times bestseller, iBooks has chosen Sweet Water by Christina Baker Kline as their Book of the Week. Take advantage of this free offer running through April 29th!
Both a Southern literary saga and a psychological thriller, this beautifully wrought novel recounts a daughter's search for the truth about her mother's death. Told in the alternating voices of Cassie, a young artist from New York City, and Clyde, her Southern grandmother, Kline vividly captures the cultural differences between the North and the South, as well as the generation gap between the two women.
Marking the debut of an extraordinary writer, Sweet Water is a suspense-filled exploration of guilt, desperation, and family myths, and the power of forgiveness to heal.
“What makes Christina Baker Kline’s first novel, SWEET WATER, go is Cassie’s persistent uncovering of family secrets … Kline keeps us glued to the page.” – Boston Globe
