A beautifully written tale of a young girl sent to work for a wealthy artist and his family as their maid. The girl and the artist start a relationship that will forever change her life. Excellent read.
This was a good read and an interesting look into the world (and studio) of Jan Vermeer and the life of a simple maid living in the mid 17th century. Viewing the described paintings while reading this book gave me a new eye for viewing art and I see Vermeer paintings with a new appreciation after reading this book.
