Wishlist Wednesday: The Miniaturist, Jessie Burton

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.



On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office-leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella's world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist-an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways . . .

Two covers on top of this post because it is going to be difficult to choose between. I have seen both in the shop already and they are both pretty. And that last sentence from that synopsis.... now I simply need to know how this story goes.

Nou jaaaa deze omslagen zien er veel leuker uit als de Nederlandse (het huis aan de gouden bocht) :-( Goede reden voor mij om ook de Engelse versie te kopen :-)
