A beautifully detailed historical read. Rosalind Laker is one of my favourite writers.

Though this book has a romance component the overall story is woven together with a historical flare for the history of the people of Amsterdam, their customs and way of life. The descriptions and settings are beautifully done and if you appreciate learning more about the life of master artists this story will more than satisfy the reader. Though the story leans to the political aspects of the day it does not dominate or take away from the characterization. A good read and not predictable or cookie cutter historical romance.
