Description

An international best seller with over two million copies sold, this is a story of an artist's desire for beauty and the ultimate corruption of innocence.

17th Century Holland. When Griet becomes a maid in the household of Johannes Vermeer in the town of Delft, she thinks she knows her role: housework, laundry and the care of his six children. But as she becomes part of his world and his work, their growing intimacy spreads tension and deception in the ordered household and, as the scandal seeps out, into the town beyond.

Tracy Chevalier's extraordinary historical novel on the corruption of innocence and the price of genius is a contemporary classic.

Absolutely glorious

When my teacher set me up to read this book I was honestly expecting a washed out version of a movie I've seen a long time ago and had no idea of the success of the book. What a fantastic fun it was to hear this book. The readers voice was so elegant and nice to hear,it felt like butter! The story is extraordinary by the way it sets the surroundingns so perfectly making it so easy for you to imagine what's happening there. I had no idea where the story would go and that made it even more exciting for me. As an artist, hearing the way Greet describes the paints and her whole fascination with her master made me tear up, I wish she had been born in a time where she herself could paint for herself, I also wished she had seen her beautiful face in the painting like we do today. This painting has always captivated me as a child learning about it in brazil and what a pleasure is to be able to now hear a story such as this. Huge thanks for everyone involved!! Will be recommending to everybody!! Muito obrigada!!!

Wonderful

Loved the story woven around Vermeer's famous painting. Great character development and gave a clear picture of the town in the 1600s. Can't wait to read another of her books.

Must have!

Not a cheesy romantic lovestory as usual. I loved the calm and soothing voice of Hattie, could listen to it for hours on end!
