Publisher's Summary

History and fiction merge seamlessly in Tracy Chevalier's luminous novel about artistic vision and sensual awakening. Through the eyes of 16-year-old Griet, the world of 1660s Holland comes dazzlingly alive in this richly imagined portrait of the young woman who inspired one of Vermeer's most celebrated paintings.

Enthralling Historical Fiction

This is a beautiful fictional story and the reading is excellent. The characters are all believable and only occasionally does the story border on the improbable. I assume that it is historically accurate in the depiction of life for upper and lower classes in a Dutch town in the 17th century. At no time did the story line drag and I was kept involved till the very last sentence.

Great Read

This book absolutely takes you to another place and another time. The writer envelopes you into the story and the main character's world from beginning to end. It is kind of an anitclimactic book, but a very sweet read. I loved it and would definitely recommend it
