The Miniaturist
A woman from a poor but titled rural family goes to Amsterdam to join her new (wealthy merchant) husband and his strange household. She is given a mini replica of the Amsterdam house by her husband as his wedding present, but he takes little interest in her otherwise. Anonymous gifts from the mysterious miniaturist begin to arrive - tiny items to go in her model house that seem to predict the future as she begins to realise that life in the Amsterdam household is full of secrets and deception.
OK I guess, didn't really grab me.
