The Miniaturist (Burton)

The Miniaturist (Burton)

The story of a young woman (Nella) in Amsterdam in the 1600’s struggling to find her place in her new life as wife of a prominent merchant trader, who doesn’t seem to be interested in being a true husband to her.  To give Nella something to occupy her time, he buys her a miniature house replicating their home.  Nella contacts a miniaturist to create pieces for the dollhouse, which seem to be able to foretell the future.

This book was not exactly what I expected it to be, and I’m not sure in the end that I truly understand it.
