Girl With a Pearl Earring


4 1/2 Stars

A young girl is sent by her family to be a maid at the home of a rich artist. The girl deals with the day-to-day indignities of being poor among the rich. The artist takes a fancy to her, however, and she becomes his apprentice, eventually sitting as his model for the famous painting of the same name. The story delves into the girl’s character as she deals with her status and tries to reconcile her desires. It ended up being a supremely enjoyable read steeped in history.
