GIRL WITH a PEARL EARRING by Tracy Chevalier

GIRL WITH a PEARL EARRING by Tracy Chevalier, (c) 1999. I watched art of the movie and have yet to watch the whole thing. I will someday.. after all I have ancestors from the Netherlands and I LOVE historical novels. This one takes place in 17th century Delft.  I am enjoying the book about a young 16 year old girl who is forced into service as a maid for a famous local painter named Vermeer. I love reading abut life in a city from 600 years in the past. Since I worked as a Home health Aid and had to clean for the elderly, I can relate to Griet’s duties as a maid. I highly recommend this book, but suspect many have already read it.

NOTE: I just finished the book, and I highly reccomend it! No hot sex, just one real sex scene. I can still remember Scarlet Johannson playing the lead role, nothing else about the movie!
