Amsterdam 1654: a dangerous secret threatens to destroy a young widow's new life.
Following the sudden death of her husband, 25-year-old Catrin leaves her small village and takes a job as housekeeper to the successful Van Nulandt merchant family. Amsterdam is a city at the peak of its powers: science and art are flourishing, and Dutch ships bring back exotic riches from the Far East.
When a figure from her past threatens her new life, Catrin flees to Delft. There, her painting talent earns her a chance as a pottery painter. Slowly the workshop begins to develop a new type of pottery to rival the coveted Chinese porcelain - and Delft Blue is born. But when tragedy strikes, Catrin has a hard choice to make.
Rich and engrossing, Midnight Blue is perfect for fans of Tulip Fever and Girl with a Pearl Earring.



"A clever story about a strong woman." (Leestafel)
"A great historical novel, with thriller aspects and romance." (Biepmiepje)

Worth listening to...

Predictable towards the end, but still enjoyable, relaxed listening experience. Especially nice if you have ever been to Delft and can visualize the setting.
