Susan Vreeland – Girl in Hyacinth Blue – 2010/TBR

The Back of the Book: Girl in Hyacinth Blue tells the story of an imaginary painting by Vermeer, and the aspirations and longings of those whose lives it illuminates, and darkens.  From a proud father regretting his lost love to a compromised French noblewoman, from a hanged girl to Vermeer’s own gifted daughter, Susan Vreeland’s beautiful and luminous tales link to form an evocative masterpiece.
