Summary Amsterdam 1654. Following the sudden death of her husband, Catrin leaves her small village and takes a job as a housekeeper to the successful Van Nulandt merchant family. Madam Van Nulandt takes expensive painting lessons from a local master, Rembrandt van Rigin. When Catrin takes up a brush to finish some of her mistress's work, Rembrandt realizes the maid has genuine talent, and encourages her to continue. When a figure from her past threatens her new life, Catrin flees to the smaller city of Delft. There, her gift as a painter earns her a chance to earn a living painting pottery at a local workshop.
