Description

With her mother dead of the plague, and her beloved brother newly married and moved away, Cornelia van Rijn finds herself without a friend or confidant - save her difficult father. Out of favour with Amsterdam's elite, and considered brash and unreasonable by his patrons, Rembrandt van Rijn, once revered, is now teetering on the brink of madness. Cornelia alone must care for him, though she herself is haunted by secrets and scandal. Her only happiness comes in chance meetings with Carel, the son of a wealthy shipping magnate whose passion for art stirs Cornelia. And then there is Neel, her father's last remaining pupil, whose steadfast devotion to Rembrandt both baffles and touches her. Based on historical fact, and filled with family dramas and a love triangle that would make Jane Austen proud, "I Am Rembrandt's Daughter" is a powerful account of a young woman's struggle to come of age within the shadow of one of the world's most brilliant and complicated artists.show more

Review quote

"Historical fiction, mystery, and romance are masterfully woven, and Cornelia's tale unfolds along the banks of Amsterdam's famous canals, enchanting readers to remain for just another chapter, and then more Cullen's rich detail so revives history as to mesmerize most. From seventeenth-century social mores to the timeless thrill of falling in love, Cullen's novel is a reader's delight."
