A book of historical fiction, similar to "girl in hyacinth blue" and "girl with a Pearl Earring," it chooses as its heroine, a young female artist taken as an apprentice to Jan Vermeer during a turbulent time in Dutch History.

Full of art, music, political intrigue, villians and great love this book set in 17th century Holland refers to the Political ambitions of Louie IV, and the masters of Florence Italy.

At some point (200 pages in) i lost track of time and found myself curious about the tulip fields in Holland and the historical streets of Amsterdam... I will surely have it in my mind when i see it for myself.

Most true in the book is a note on page 287: " Lovers are fortunate when they are friends as well...." and to not take for granted a single moment with those you love.
