Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier

Girl With a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier

A decent book with an interesting story. Some of the writing was a bit predictable or awkward, but it was a quick, pleasant read. I might read another of her books. The movie was not as good, though it was interesting to see the book come to life, so to speak.
