Girl in Hyacinth Blue By Susan Vreeland Cover Image

Published: Penguin Books - October 1st, 2000

An unforgettable novel that follows a painting throughout several centuries of owners, back to the original painter and subject. Each chapter can be a stand-alone short story, but strung together they make an intriguing look at the power of art through diverse life experiences. You don't have to know anything about art to enjoy this one but it was first recommended to be because I'm a fan of the painter Johannes Vermeer!
