Now a major film starring Oscar winners Dame Judi Dench, Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz and adapted for the screen by Sir Tom Stoppard.
From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel comes a thrilling story of power, lust and deception...
Seventeenth-century Amsterdam – a city in the grip of tulip fever.
Sophia’s husband Cornelis is one of the lucky ones grown rich from this exotic new flower.
To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his beautiful bride.
But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception and a reckless gamble.

An interesting read but the final part of the storyline was hurried compared to the earlier portion of the book, which made the storyline unequal and, for me, spoiled some of the enjoyment.
A bit thin
It’s ok. Capturing the period but not really about the tulip fever in any detail. A love story of sorts but I couldn’t get with any of the characters.
