From Our Editors
When Oprah picked White
Oleander for her book club, it was well on its way to becoming a
word-of-mouth bestseller. Afterward, it became an overnight sensation, and a
number-one national bestseller. A powerful story following the lives of a
mother and her daughter, this book is a triumph in every sense of the word –
Ingrid and Astrid will haunt you long after you've turned the last page.
