WHY I WROTE THIS NOVEL THE WAY I DID...
One of the highlights of my last trip to Amsterdam was seeing the work of Dutch Master Johann Vermeer... I was especially amazed to see Girl with Pearl Earring. Her face was so full of life. What stories were hidden behind her eyes? What did the pearl earring mean to her?
Amy came alongside Lily. “What are you staring at?”
“They’re all wearing the same earrings,” Lily explained. She reached up, pointing to the pearls just below Julia’s hair. “See? Even this one. They’re buried under her hair but they’re right there on the bottom.” She brushed the earrings on the painting with her fingertip. Amy peered at the portraits, taking a closer look, then smiled at Lily.
“You’re right! And I never would have spotted them on my own. What do you think it means?” Lily’s fingertip tingled where it had brushed the paint and canvas, and she felt a sudden chill run down her spine. “I don’t know -- they’re pretty, though.”
What kind of paint was that? Why did it cause that buzz in her hand? She rubbed her palms together briskly to shake off the weird feeling that had come into her right hand.
