I had a very hard time coming up with a review or a rating for this book.  I was way over- annoyed by what I suppose I’ll call “history lite.”  This isn’t really fair because I was a history major and have been a history buff all my life.

Burton featured a character with the same name as an historical person who lived in Amsterdam in the 1680s and this person owned an incredible dollhouse which survives in an Amsterdam museum.  That’s pretty much where the history ends.  (See my Notes 2 page – there are also photos and links there.)  >>>>MORE>>>>
