    A good story, with plenty to entice the reader to continue. The story is told in two voices: a narrator and Hendrickje, a girl from a provincial Calvinist home, who joins Rembrandt's household as a maid. Five years on from the death of Rembrandt's wife, Saskia van Uylenburgh, he is still suffering grief and seeking peace Ė not unexpectedly, of course. Hendrickje observes his intimacy with Geertje, his housekeeper, and much of what follows is a result of her reactions to the event and observation. Interwoven with the personal stories of Rembrandt and his household is much detail of life and art in 17th century Amsterdam. This makes for a satisfying and enjoyable read.

    I was a little sceptical regarding this book, having read other books based around a chocolate theme I was worried this might be a Ďpoor cousiní, however I was pleasantly surprised and it proved to be an enjoyable and unique read.
