The marriage to Amsterdam merchant Johannes Brandt should have provided Petronella ‚Nella‘ Oortman with stability, money and her own household. But when she arrives at her husband’s house, no one is happy to see her there. Johannes‘ wedding gift, a miniature version of their house, seems like a crude joke to her who is more unwanted guest than mistress. When the miniaturist starts sending her meaningful additions to her toy, Nella realizes that secrets infiltrate every nook and corner of her new home.
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
Then Bernadette disappears.
It’s time again for my Monthly Favourites. This month, I will show you my favourite shows on Netflix, my new baking obsession and what I could’nt leave behind at the Accessorize Sale.
Es ist mal wieder Zeit für meine Monatsfavoriten. Ich zeige euch meine Lieblings-Netflix Serien aus dem Juli, meinen neuen Heiligen Gral zum Thema Backen und was ich beim Sommer-Sale von Accessorize nicht im Laden liegen lassen konnte.
Summertime is usually a period where a lots of Blockbusters hit the screen. Kids are on holidays from school and what better way for a parent to spend the day and keep the occupied for a while and to escape from the sun (Germany) or Rain (Scotland) than to watch something in the cinema. Reason enough for me for a new installment of my series „What’s New in Cinemas?“. Today, I will show you my favourite picks for the months of July and August.
