History and fiction merge seamlessly in this luminous novel about artistic vision and sensual awakening as seen through the eyes of the young woman who was the inspiration behind one of Vermeer's finest paintings.With its striking sense of period detail - vividly evoking a distant place and time - Girl with a Pearl Earring tells the tale of a young girl on the brink of womanhood, whose life is transformed by her brief encounter with genius ... even as she herself is immortalized on canvas.show more
