Location: Horchow Auditorium
Alive with the magic of 18th-century Amsterdam, The House of Fortune is an enchanting stand-alone companion novel to the sensational bestseller The Miniaturist, which has sold more than two million copies worldwide. A feat of sweeping, magical storytelling, this captivating novel is about fate and ambition, love and obsession, family and loyalty, secrets and dreams, and one young woman’s determination to rule her own destiny.
Thea Brandt is turning 18 and is ready to welcome adulthood with open arms. At the theater, the love of her life awaits her, unlike at home where her father, Otto, and Aunt Nella argue endlessly, faced with selling their furniture in order to make ends meet. On Thea’s birthday, also the day that her mother, Marin, died, the secrets from the past begin to overwhelm the present.

“A spectacular achievement, [a] glittering glass bauble of brilliance.” —KATE WILLIAMS
