    Tracy Chevalier - Girl With a Pearl Earring. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are either the product of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, business establishments, events or locales is entirely coincidental.4/5(32). Girl with a Pearl Earring was not Chevalier's first exploration of the past. In The Virgin Blue, her U.K.-published first novel (U.S. edition, ), her modern-day character Ella Turner goes back to 16th-century France in order to revisit her family history. As a result, she finds parallels between herself and a troubled ancestor — a woman.

    In Girl with a Pearl Earring, she recreates the 17th-century world of Johannes Vermeer. This haunting work of historical fiction received rave reviews in publications as diverse as The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and The Christian Science Monitor.   Buy Girl With a Pearl Earring 01 by Chevalier, Tracy (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

    Read free book excerpt from Girl With A Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier, page 1 of 1. I enjoyed this book, but it is a little dark. The artist painting the girl with the pearl earring is overbearing, unfeeling and unlikeable. His wife is worse. The heroine, the girl with the earring, is in a helpless situation, but she is determined to escape the terrible situation in which she has found herself.
