“Girl with the Pearl Earring” by Tracy Chevalier

Girl with the Pearl EarringTracy Chevalier has written a number of books and I have enjoyed all of them. The first one I read was her 1999 historical fiction book Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Set in 17th century Holland, the novel was inspired by Delft school painter Johannes Vermeer’s painting Girl with a Pearl Earring.

The book was also made into a movie, which wasn’t actually too bad, starring Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth.

Buy this book at your local bookstore.
