Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling novel by the author of Remarkable Creatures and The Last Runaway
Translated into thirty-nine languages and made into an Oscar-nominated film, starring Scarlett Johanson and Colin Firth

Tracy Chevalier transports readers to a bygone time and place in this richly-imagined portrait of the young woman who inspired one of Vermeer's most celebrated paintings.

History and fiction merge seamlessly in this luminous novel about artistic vision and sensual awakening. Girl with a Pearl Earring tells the story of sixteen-year-old Griet, whose life is transformed by her brief encounter with genius . . . even as she herself is immortalized in canvas and oil.

A wonderful read.

I had to read this book over the summer for my English class, and I must say that I am glad that I had to. This was an outstanding read although some points were dull, the author did a great job in keeping the reader intreged.

Required summer reading before college (many years ago) and I must say that I loved it then and still find myself wanting to read it again! Captivating and beautifully written!
