Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach

Book Description

Seventeenth-century Amsterdam is a city in the grip of tulip mania, basking in the wealth it has generated. Sophia's husband Cornelis, an ageing merchant, is among those grown rich from this exotic new flower. To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his young bride. But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and as ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception, their reckless gamble propels their lives towards a thrilling and tragic conclusion.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Reading this is like stepping into the world of an exquisite Dutch painting. The setting is 17th-century Holland; the subject - love, art, beauty, transcience and betrayal. Tender, gripping and beautifully written, it's two love stories intertwined - one sweet and one that turns slowly and terribly sour. When beautiful Sophia begins an affair with the portrait painter her husband has hired, she and her servant, Maria, resort to desperate measures to protect themselves and their livelihoods - but they pay a price. With the gorgeous detail and immaculate proportion of a Dutch still life, Moggach evokes a world of stark beauty and lovesick folly, set against the backdrop of Amsterdam during the height of tulip fever. By turns poignant, thrilling and absurdly funny, this is Moggach at her best. Review by Liz Jensen who is author of 'Ark Baby'. (Kirkus UK)
