Kelly | 769 comments This novel by Tracy Chevalier is a fictional story that follows a young maid named Griet who works in the home of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. It takes place beginning in 1664 and places Griet as the girl wearing a pearl earring in his famous portrait.

Griet does not have an easy time working in the home and is disliked by some who live there. The author creates characters who speak few words, but have their ideas expressed in other ways. Griet also needs to make decisions regarding own life. It is a quick read and written very well.

This is one of my favorite historical fiction novels and definitely my favorite book written by Chevalier. Glad to see you enjoyed the story too, Kelly.
