The Seventh Etching gives readers a fascinating glimpse into 17th century Amsterdam. This novel is the story of two families suffering strife, and covers both extreme wealth and poverty during the era. To read this book is like taking a trip back in time to experience the social, political, and religious circumstances. With meticulous detail, the author describes food, clothing, and art, lending the novel credence and richness. Beyond the well-written prose and lush storyline are the characters who face numerous struggles and behave in realistic manners. No novel of Amsterdam is complete without reference to its famous painters. I thoroughly enjoyed the scene with Rembrandt. This is a rich historical fiction novel set in a lesser known country with plenty of conflict and details that will keep readers reading. Definitely recommended!

Being born and raised in Amsterdam, I felt almost flattered when I found out that an American author took ‘my’ city as the topic of her novel. And she didn’t disappoint me! Judith K. White truly managed to bring the city alive: I could almost here the carriages on the cobblestones, smell the day market and hear the fishwives scream. Her main characters are described just as detailed. Rich and poor, old and young, urban and rural, protestant and catholic all meet each other in this novel with well built-up suspense. “The Seventh Etching” is an intriguing story about loss and possession and definitely worth reading for all lovers of historic novels.

From the very first page of this compelling novel I was captivated. The eloquence and historical accuracy with which the author writes -- together with the fascinating plot which includes mystery, art, and humor -- holds your attention throughout. The characters are engaging and memorable and at the end of the novel you want to hear more about their lives. This is a book for all ages -- I sent copies to my senior-citizen sister-in-law for her book club as well as to my daughter and teen-age granddaughters, and we are all anxiously awaiting a sequel.
