1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in Amsterdam. She has come from the country to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt, but instead she is met by his sharp-tongued sister, Marin. Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist. As Nella uncovers the closed world of the Brandt household, she realises the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands?

Professional reviews

"‘The next big thing... Incredibly well-written, beautifully plotted’ EVENING STANDARD ‘The Miniaturist is that rarest of things - beautifully written, yet also a compelling page-turner… the kind of book that reminds you why you fell in love with reading’ S. J. WATSON, author of Before I Go To Sleep ‘A fabulously gripping read that will appeal to fans of Girl With a Pearl Earring and The Goldfinch, but Burton is a genuinely new voice… great complex female characters’ OBSERVER"
