'A gorgeous novel' Mail on SundayFrom the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel comes a thrilling story of power, lust and deception... Seventeenth-century Amsterdam - a city in the grip of tulip fever. Sophia's husband Cornelis is one of the lucky ones grown rich from this exotic new flower.

To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his beautiful bride.

But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception and a reckless gamble. Now a major film starring Oscar winners Dame Judi Dench, Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz and adapted for the screen by Sir Tom Stoppard.
