Description:
On an autumn day in 1686, 18-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin. Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways. Nella is at first mystified by the closed world of the Brandt household, but as she uncovers its secrets she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all.

I loved this. I know it's had a certain amount of hype around it, and more particularly probably because it was televised, but I did really enjoy the story. I thought the characters were well drawn and the dynamics between them strong. I found the setting and the religious backdrop interesting as I didn't know much about Amsterdam society at that time. It's very engaging as a novel, I'd recommend it.
