I enjoyed Girl with the Pearl Earring----really got a sense of what everyday ife might have been like then. There are others like it, too, where the author looks at a painting and tries to imagine what was going on. Another good book about the time period is Rosalind Laker's The Golden Tulip.


I liked Girl with a Pearl Earring way more than Girl in Hyacinth Blue, basically for the reasons given by Lisa.


I liked Girl with a Pearl earring as well--just don't expect much of a plot. It's more a slice of life book, and that's fascinating enough.
