Jessie Burton was born in 1982. She studied at Oxford University and the Central School of Speech and Drama, and has worked as an actress and a PA in the City. She now lives in south-east London, not far from where she grew up.
In 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella knocks at the door of a grand house in Amsterdam. She has come to begin a new life as the wife of an illustrious merchant trader. Her new husband presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a miniature replica of their home, to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways.
