Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier (Book Review)

Set in Holland in the 1660s, Girl With a Pearl Earring is a novel about a young woman who inspired one of Vemeer's most famous paintings.

The novel is sensational. The writing is simple and elegant, and the words and pages disappear as the plot and historical landscape come alive.

Highly recommended.
