A sumptuous new look for Tracy Chevalier's bestselling novel. Griet, the young daughter of a tilemaker in seventeeth century Holland, obtains her first job, as a servant in Vermeer's household.

Griet loves being drawn into his artistic life, and leaving her former drudgery, but the cost to her own survival may be high.
