Summary

Summary

When tulip-grower Cornelius van Baerle is framed for treason and sentenced to death, he is powerless against the brutal factional politics that put him in prison. But Rosa, the jailer’s daughter, is beautiful and strong-willed, and when they fall in love she determines not only to save him but also to grow the near mythical flower: the black tulip.

Set in the savage turmoil of Holland’s late seventeenth century, this intimate novel celebrates the power of integrity over obsession and tolerance over violence; it creates in the black tulip a symbol of humanity’s potential.
