A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
A look at tulipomania in the Netherlands in the 17th century, set around the lives of three sisters. Rembrandt and Vermeer make appearances. I really enjoyed this one, as I had the sense of 'being there' throughout the novel.
