I love her. Love, love, love Tracy Chevalier and her writing. I read Burning Bright a million years ago and I fell in love. Then I read Remarkable Creatures, and still, love. And now Girl with a Pearl Earring, admittedly I was a little worried since Scarlet Johansson played Griet in the movie, but this book was so beautiful.
I always love books that have a little history mixed in and you can look at paintings and read stories about the characters in historical sites and things like that. This actually got me in interested in Vermeer and his work and I loved that Tracy worked it all in so nicely and had a little story for most of his paintings. Not to mention I really enjoyed this character and where the story went.
Such a beautiful piece of art this book is and I’m so happy that I wasn’t disappointed with it. I can’t wait to read more of her books, I was over the moon about this one.
Definitely read it if you haven’t already. Enlightens you.
