Girl with a Pearl Earring

Girl With a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier A sparkling little book. It tries to put a back story to explain how a picture came to be painted, which is one of the questions that is often prompted by a good picture. One assumes that there has to be at least a framework of facts in which the story is based, but they don't actually matter too much. It's a good tale and as long as it is treated like that, its an engaging read.
