The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sadness and love permeate this deeply touching coming of age story based around the life of Rembrandt, the great Dutch painter. Caring for her difficult father at the end of his life, Cornelia pieces together the story of her own childhood and discovers much more about her father’s love than she had ever known before.

Synopsis

I Am Rembrandt's Daughter by Lynn Cullen

With her mother dead of the plague, and her beloved brother newly married and moved away, Cornelia van Rijn finds herself without a friend or confidant - save her difficult father. Out of favour with Amsterdam's elite, and considered brash and unreasonable by his patrons, Rembrandt van Rijn, once revered, is now teetering on the brink of madness.

About the Author

Lynn Cullen

Lynn Cullen is the author of I AM REMBRANDT'S DAUGHTER, a 2007 Barnes & Noble "Discover Great New Writers" selection. Her first novel for a general audience, I AM REMBRANDT'S DAUGHTER is the result of eight years of research and travel. Lynn Cullen's previous award-winning novels and picture books for children include the critically acclaimed MOI & MARIE ANTOINETTE, THE BACKYARD GHOST, and THE MIGHTIEST HEART, for which she was named 1999 Georgia Author of the Year.

An avid traveler and self-taught historian, Lynn Cullen grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she spent much of her childhood combing the public library for biographies and roaming the riverbank near where the legendary pioneer, Johnny Appleseed, planted a grove of apple trees. She now lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, Michael, and three daughters, and is intrigued that artifacts from the Civil War have been unearthed in her backyard.
