I Am Rembrandt's Daughter

by Lynn Cullen

Bloomsbury Juvenile US | October 21, 2008 | Trade Paperback

I Am Rembrandt's Daughter is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

With her mother dead of the plague and her brother newly married, Cornelia van Rijn finds herself without a friend or confidante—except her difficult father. Out of favor with Amsterdam’s elite, the once revered Rembrandt van Rijn is now teetering on the brink of madness. Cornelia alone must care for him, though she is haunted by secrets and scandal of her own. Her only happiness comes in a growing romance with Carel, the son of a wealthy shipping magnate, whose passion for art stirs her. And then there is Neel, her father’s last remaining pupil, a darkly brooding young man whose steadfast devotion to Rembrandt both baffles and touches her.

Based on real characters and filled with family dramas and a love triangle that would make Jane Austen proud, "I Am Rembrandt’s Daughter" is a powerful account of a young woman’s struggle to come of age within the shadow of one of the world’s most brilliant and complicated artists.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Artsy Quirk I personally like reading about art history, with a little bit of romance mingled in. I wouldn't call this book a 'fun' read, but a book to add to your romance fill. The style of writing is simple, and easilly read. You might get frustrated with the main character, Rembrandt's daughter, who is conflicted by two love interests, (both handsome men) but it was nice to read on a rainy day, or after finishing all your homework. It explores Rembrandt's hardships, his daughter's boy drama, and unfortunate death. The young woman eventually uncovers the right way to live, and decides on the right man. The ending was sweet, though somewhat unsatisfying and the whole book will remind you how difficult it was for women all those years ago. I recommend it to any romantic inclined teen who wants a quick read.
