tulip bulb frenzy. i don't particularly care for stories set in the medieval and renaissance time periods, but again this is an area in which the author is gifted. he is somehow able to paint the setting into his story without getting the reader (at least me) bogged down in it. he is really brilliant with this, actually. so those are my thoughts. good book. interesting read. enjoyed it.
genre: historical fiction
setting: holland in (approximately) 1637
reading level: adult, high school
