A sumptuous new look for Tracy Chevalier's bestselling novel.
Griet, the young daughter of a tilemaker in seventeenth century
Holland, obtains her first job, as a servant in Vermeer's
household. Tracy Chevalier shows us, through Griet's eyes, the
complicated family, the society of the small town of Delft, and
life with an obsessive genius. Griet loves being drawn into his
artistic life, and leaving her former drudgery, but the cost to her
own survival may be high. Customer Reviews
