THE BLURB:    

Everywhere hailed as a novel of rare beauty and power, White Oleander tells the unforgettable story of Ingrid, a brilliant poet imprisoned for murder, and her daughter, Astrid, whose odyssey through a series of Los Angeles foster homes-each its own universe, with its own laws, its own dangers, its own hard lessons to be learned-becomes a redeeming and surprising journey of self-discovery.

 

THE FIRST LINE:   

The Santa Anas blew in hot from the desert, shriveling the last of the spring grass into whiskers of pale straw. Only the oleanders thrived, their delicate poisonous blooms, their dagger green leaves.

 

MY THOUGHTS:    

White Oleander is a “journey of self-discovery” which is why it resonated with me so.

 

GENRE:

Contemporary Women’s Fiction

 

STARS:

Haven’t read the book but I saw the movie (ages ago) and it was intense.
