Product description


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. Hemingway)

Utterly beguiling and impeccably written. I am missing the characters already (Emylia Hall, author of The Book of Summers)

Utterly transporting, The Miniaturist is one of those rare debut novels that excels in every regard. The past is brought to life in potent, sensory detail: one feels steeped in it. Burton's prose beguiles the reader, while a riptide of a plot takes hold with an unrelenting grip of suspense. My first instinct on finishing this book was to immediately read it again (Hannah Kent, author of Burial Rites)

Book Description

The sensational debut novel that became a Sunday Times No.1 bestseller and took the world by storm.
