The House of Fortune (Paperback)Jessie Burton (author)
In the sequel to former Waterstones Book of the Year The Miniaturist, Burton crafts another exquisite story of family and fate set in early 18th-century Amsterdam.
1705. Thea Brandt is about to turn eighteen, and at the theatre in Amsterdam's golden city centre she has met the love of her life.
At home, the Brandt family faces ruin, and Thea's aunt Nella is convinced the only solution is to find Thea a wealthy husband among the city's elite.
As Thea and Nella clash over the demands of duty and the heart, past secrets begin to overwhelm their present. Will each woman be able to rescue her destiny from the whims of fortune?
Returning the reader to the resplendent world of the million-copy bestseller The Miniaturist, The House of Fortune is a story of love, fate, and two women determined to make their own way.
