About the Book
With her mother dead of the plague, and her beloved brother newly married and moved away, Cornelia van Rijn finds herself without a friend or confidante--save her difficult father. Out of favor with Amsterdam's elite, and considered brash and unreasonable by his patrons, Rembrandt van Rijn, once revered, is now teetering on the brink of madness. Cornelia alone must care for him, though she herself is haunted by secrets and scandal. Her only happiness comes in chance meetings with Carel, the son of a wealthy shipping magnate whose passion for art stirs Cornelia. And then there is Neel, her father's last remaining pupil, whose steadfast devotion to Rembrandt both baffles and touches her. Based on historical fact, 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.
From the Publisher
In the vein of Girl with a Pearl Earring comes a powerful novel of a girl living in the shadow of a great artist. Rembrandt’s teenage daughter, Cornelia, fights bill-collectors and holds the home together as her brooding father paints dark, unsellable religious scenes.
I Am Rembrandt’s Daughter is a moving portrait of a genius in his later years and a vivacious and intelligent young woman on the brink of independence.
