Publisher's Summary

Seventeenth-century Amsterdam is a city in the grip of tulip mania, basking in the wealth it has generated.
Sophia’s husband Cornelis, an ageing merchant, is among those grown rich from this exotic new flower. To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his young bride. But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and as ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception, their reckless gamble propels their lives towards a thrilling and tragic conclusion.

The ending seemed rushed

Overall this was a captivating and easy listen. The story was interesting and easy to follow even though it switched between several characters. The ending did seem very rushed compared to the rest of the dtory, but it was still a good read.

Very interesting book

This book was unpredictable in many ways which made it fun to listen to. The reader was excellent as she navigated between half a dozen characters. I listened on a trip to Amsterdam and it was perfect for the history and the setting the time of The Golden Age in Holland.
