Summary

Griet, the young daughter of a tile maker in 17th-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.

girl with the pearl earing

Having already read the book and seem the movie the audio version was brilliant. As a new mum of a right little handful i found the readings easy to listen to in between my daughter's quite times ie when she is asleep!. Thank you so much for the chance of least being able to listen to a good book.
