We had this for our Bookclub last night. I love the painting. I loved the idea for the book , the relationship between 16 year old beautiful Griet and Vermeer. There was something in the tone of the book , all the time he spent alone with her and studying her , that I didn‘t like , that turned me off the book. I don‘t know if I liked her writing all that much. Still, a brilliant idea to write a story about.
