Winner of the Waterstones Book of the Year 2014

There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed...

On an autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin.

Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways...

Nella is at first mystified by the closed world of the Brandt household, but as she uncovers its secrets she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall? 

In 2014, Jessie Burton's debut The Miniaturist stood out for us as an exquisite example of the writer’s craft, combining an intoxicating sense of place with a genuine sense of mystery and suspense. From our selection that year for our Waterstones Book of the YearThe Miniaturist stood out as a clear winner and it has been truly rewarding to see its reputation as a novel subsequently recognised the world over.

The BBC's adaptation of The Miniaturist is scheduled for broadcast this Christmas.

“Dark and twisted...”

This book starts well enough; the pages turn and the plot unfolds quickly - I never really felt connected to the main protagonist, Nella in any way at the beginning, and to me the author struggles to have Nella's... More
