White Oleander
White Oleander | Janet Fitch
Astrid is the only child of a single mother, Ingrid, a brilliant, obsessed poet who wields her luminous beauty to intimidate and manipulate men. Astrid worships her mother and cherishes their private world full of ritual and mystery - but their idyll is shattered when Astrid's mother falls apart over a lover. Deranged by rejection, Ingrid murders the man, and is sentenced to life in prison. White Oleander is the unforgettable story of Astrid's journey through a series of foster homes and her efforts to find a place for herself in impossible circumstances. Each home is its own universe, with a new set of laws and lessons to be learned. With determination and humor, Astrid confronts the challenges of loneliness and poverty, and strives to learn who a motherless child in an indifferent world can become. Oprah Winfrey enjoyed this gripping first novel so much that she not only made it her book club pick, she asked if she could narrate the audio release.

“Let me tell you a few things about regret...There is no end to it. You cannot find the beginning of the chain that brought us from there to here. Should you regret the whole chain, and the air in between, or each link separately as if you could uncouple them? Do you regret the beginning which ended so badly, or just the ending itself?”

Ingrid is sent to prison for murdering her lover, and her 12 y/o daughter Astrid is put into foster care. Astrid‘s time in various foster homes is disturbing to say the least. Ingrid and Astrid‘s relationship is so toxic it‘s heartbreaking and infuriating. The story and characters won‘t soon be forgotten!

#WanderingJune #Californication
I missed this book when it was an Oprah pick in ‘99. One of the best books I‘ve read so far this year.
The writing is gorgeous, particularly the descriptions of California. Ingrid‘s poetry just seeps into the prose. As a character she‘s captivating- Narcissistic, manipulative and the world‘s most awful mother! It‘s a heartbreaking story of a her daughter‘s coming of age, in a foster system that repeatedly fails her.

Cinfhen I totally agree with your entire blurb. This book was lush and poignant and heartbreaking. Stunning prose 3y

A few days late as it was tough thinking of a villainous character.

Ingrid Magnussen though not poorly written, her narcissistic personality definitely qualifies her as a villain. She is ferocious with her manipulation towards her daughter Astrid even while serving a prison sentence.

This beautifully written book passed me by when it was an Oprah pick in 1999. So I was pleased a friend picked it as a bookclub selection for next month.
The writing is so gorgeous, and Ingrid‘s poetry seeps into the prose. My only hesitation to recommend this would be the heaviness of the story. There really is so little lightness to balance this heartbreaking story of a young girl‘s coming of age, in a foster system that repeatedly fails her.

Jeannineth I loved it. I listened recently on an audiobook narrated by Oprah. 3y
Mdargusch Oprah books are always so emotional. 3y
