Synopsis

There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed . . .





On an autumn day in 1686, eighteen-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. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall?





Beautiful, intoxicating and filled with heart-pounding suspense, The Miniaturist is a magnificent story of love and obsession, betrayal and retribution, appearance and truth.

Customer Reviews

Am only halfway through but really enjoying it, have absolutely no idea where the story is leading so intrigued to see what happens later in the book. Not one of the best books I have read lately but a good relaxing read.

Staff Choice

The full appeal of The Miniaturist snuck up on me almost unawares. I started reading it as straight-forward historical fiction and I was enjoying it. Slowly though, I began to realise there was something... more. Every time I thought I knew where the story was taking me it changed course slightly. It kept me intrigued and it kept me on my toes. And I loved it.
