The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton (Free Download), THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 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, Jessie Burton’s magnificent debut novel The Miniaturist is a story of love and obsession, betrayal and retribution, appearance and truth.

Review quote

The kind of book that reminds you why you fell in love with reading — S. J. Watson, author of BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP A fabulously gripping read that will appeal to fans of Girl With a Pearl Earring and The Goldfinch, but Burton is a genuinely new voice with her visceral take on sex, race and class … Burton writes great complex female characters Observer A terrific novel: compelling cast, gripping plot, writing to savour — Nathan Filer, author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL A remarkable debut – complex, involving and deeply atmospheric — Deborah Moggach, author of TULIP FEVER The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton is set in 17th century Amsterdam where a trader presents his new wife Nella with a miniature replica of their home. Its tiny occupants mirror their real-life counterparts and show Nella what grave dangers lie in wait. — Hot Books of 2014 Daily Express A delight on every page, The Miniaturist completely immerses the reader in sumptuous but strict seventeenth-century Amsterdam. Like the intricately crafted doll’s house at the centre of the novel, there is a surprise behind each closed door and curtain – hidden worlds of deceit and seduction, guilds and guilders, candied walnuts and sugar loaves. Burton’s novel is lovingly done, and exquisite to read — Naomi Wood, author of MRS.
