Description: Francesca's father is a well-known painter in the bustling port city of Amsterdam; he is also a gambler. Though their household is in economic chaos, thankfully the lessons she learned in his studio have prepared her to study with Johannes Vermeer, the master of Delft. When she arrives to begin her apprenticeship, Francesca is stunned to find rules, written in her father's hand, insisting that she give up the freedoms she once enjoyed at home- including her friendship with Pieter van Doorne, a tulip merchant. Unaware of a terrible bargain her father has made against her future, Francesca pursues her growing affection for Pieter even as she learns to paint like Vermeer, in layers of light. As her talent blooms, "tulip mania" sweeps the land, and fortunes are being made on a single bulb. What seems like a boon for Pieter instead reveals the extent of the betrayal of Francesca's father. And as the two learn the true nature of the obstacles in their path, a patron of Francesca's father determines to do anything in his power to ensure she stays within the limits that have been set for her. "The Golden Tulip" brings one of the most exciting periods of Dutch history alive, creating a page-turning novel that is as vivid and unforgettable as a Vermeer painting.

Author Barbara Geils Ovstedal uses the pen name Rosalind Laker for her historical romances. Her interest in history began early, when she became intrigued by the stories she heard about her ancestors; some of those stories, in fact, formed the basis for several of her historical novels. Laker researches the historical settings for her novels very carefully, so that she can create an accurate background and atmosphere for her stories. Her titles include Sovereign's Key, Far Seeks the Heart, Warwyck's Woman, The Venetian Mask, Circle of Pearls, The Fragile Hour, and The Golden Tulip. Under her own name, Ovstedal has written a travel book about Norway, as well as several novels, including Red Cherry Summer, Valley of the Reindeer, and Souvenir of Sweden. Laker's interest in Norway stems from her Norwegian husband, Inge Ovstedal, whom she met while he was serving with the Free Norwegian Air Force during World War II. Laker and her husband live mainly in England, but they also have a summer home in Norway, a 400-year old cottage that they restored themselves, which gave Laker the opportunity to indulge her interests in old houses and antique furniture.
