Girl With A Pearl EarringBook - 2000
"When Griet becomes a maid in the household of the seventeenth-century painter Jahannes Vermeer, she thinks she knows her role: housework, laudry, and child crae. She even feels able to handle his shrewd mpther-in-law, his restless wife, and their jealous servant. What no one expects is that Griet's quiet manner, quick perceptions, and fascination with her master's paintings will draw her inexorably into his world. Their growing intimacy sparks whispers; and when Vermeer paints her wearing his wife's pearl earrings, the gossip escalates into a full-blown scandal that irrevocably changes Griet's life."--Publisher description.
