Hyacinth Blue is my favorite color, for a book! (and may I say, that I also love the cover art & the cute small size.) But, the BEST part is the story! Tracing Netherlands artist, Jan van der Meer's, painting of "The Girl In Hyacinth Blue" backward in time from it's current owner to it's very inception, is an amazing journey that gives us glimpses of "colorful" lives in another place & time.
