The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

The Miniaturist
by Jessie Burton

In 1686, eighteen year old Nella Oortman enters an arranged marriage with a much older, successful, merchant trader in Amsterdam. As a wedding gift, her husband gives her a cabinet-sized replica of their home. A mysterious miniaturist begins sending her tiny creations that replicate their counterparts in the house. These eerie gifts from the miniaturist help Nella unlock the many secrets of her new home. This book is historical fiction at its best and will keep you turning the pages as the secrets are revealed. -- recommended by Tammy T. - Collection Management Department
