Tulip Fever




From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel this is a story of power, lust and deception set in seventeenth-century Amsterdam

Seventeenth-century Amsterdam is a city in the grip of tulip mania, basking in the wealth it has generated. Sophia’s husband Cornelis, an ageing merchant, is among those grown rich from this exotic new flower. To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his young bride. But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and as ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception, their reckless gamble propels their lives towards a thrilling and tragic conclusion.

“Sensuous and masterly...a gorgeous novel”

Mail on Sunday
