她從未想過,她的婚姻竟被微雕玩具屋掌控‧‧‧

  1686年的秋天,剛滿18歲鄉下姑娘Nella嫁給了荷蘭傑出貿易商Johannes,並入住位於阿姆斯特丹的豪宅,但進門的第一天,迎接她的卻是Johannes的毒舌妹妹瑪琳。但第一天的不愉快因為Johannes出現而煙消雲散,Johannes體貼的送給新婚妻子一只微雕玩具屋,玩具屋的外觀和家具擺設,和他們居住的現實豪宅幾乎一模一樣。

  Nella起初對於玩具屋感到著迷,但漸漸的似乎能感到不對勁,因為娃具屋的變化,似乎能反映現實家裡?玩具屋的秘密究竟是甚麼?她該如何逃離被玩具屋掌握的婚姻?(文/博客來編譯)

  This is a sensational feat of storytelling for fans of Sarah Waters and Donna Tartt. There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed...On an autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman knocks at the door of a grand house in the wealthiest quarter of 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, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways...Nella is at first mystified by the closed world of the Brandt household, but as she uncovers its secrets she realizes the escalating dangers that await them all. Does the miniaturist hold their fate in her hands? And will she be the key to their salvation or the architect of their downfall? Beautiful, intoxicating and filled with heart-pounding suspense, The Miniaturist is a magnificent story of love and obsession, betrayal and retribution, appearance and truth..
