WHITE OLEANDER

$19.99 $5.00 

Synopsis

A highly regarded inclusion to Oprah's Book Club, Janet Fitch's international bestselling novel White Oleander is a heartbreaking study of manipulation and the conviction of love in a life filled with uncertainty.

"Love humiliates you...hatred cradles you." So echoes the words of cold-hearted matriarch Ingrid Magnussen (Oscar® nominee Michelle Pfeiffer, Hairspray). Her violent crime of passion not only places her in jail but sends her fifteen year-old daughter Astrid (Alison Lohman, Drag Me To Hell) on a trajectory of turmoil and self-discovery. In and out of three foster homes in as many years, Astrid's life is a circus of emotions, finding value and worth in the people and places that both surround and confound her. Stretching the ties that bind ever so thin, Astrid struggles with acceptance and her ability to forge an identity and independence within her ever-changing environment.

Also featuring Oscar® winner Renée Zellweger (Chicago) and Robin Wright Penn (Forrest Gump), White Oleander captures the essence of belonging and asks the haunting question - where does a mother's love end and a daughter's life begin?
