Girl with a Pearl Earring

Girl With a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier I started and finished this book today while waiting to be called for jury duty. What a lovely, elegant little novel. Lots of reviewers have compared it to a Vermeer painting, so let me say that where Diane Haeger's The Ruby Ring was a respectable but modest chocolate cake, "Girl with a Pearl Earring" is tiramisu. If you have an interest in art history or historical fiction in general, do not miss this book.
