Has anyone on here ever read Tracy Chevalier? She wrote 'Girl In A Pearl Earring' and I love some of her other books, especially 'The Virgin Blue.'  I enjoy historical fiction a lot and she's one of the best, in my opinion - not dull or obsessed with historical facts, but just captures the spirit of the time and place.

As a custom title for me, useful I would like it to be. Something descriptive, about me I give: I am "The Limerick Lady."

I read Girl with a Pearl Earring for my book discussion group and really enjoyed it.  I don't think I've read any of her others, though.

Hmm, perhaps I should read this.  I've seen the movie based on the book and it's excellent.

Its a real page-turner, I'd recommend 'Girl with a pearl earring' to everyone and anyone!

I've recently finished 'Falling Angels' as well, set in Victorian times, and loved it as well!
