The Miniaturist’s cabinet

The cabinet is the key that the plot revolves around.  What do you think this symbolises within the story?  A slow beginning, but I am enjoying this book now.  Looking forward to hearing what you think of it next week.

“I found a sad little fairy
Beneath the shade of a paper tree.
I know a sad little fairy
Who was blown away by the wind one night”

We rated this book 7/10 – we all enjoyed it and everyone read the whole book!  Some of us were unsure about the ending.  Should it have been more conclusive? Or did it reflect the reality of life’s inconclusive endings?  What do you think?
