I Am Rembrandt's Daughter, 1667
By: Lynn Cullen
"Paints perfect scenes of 17th century Amsterdam for readers to imagine"
"A refreshingly original story that melds historical fiction with a coming-of age narrative, Cullen's novel is a treat for readers."

- "Hello, Cornelia." --- This quote is important because it is the first time we are introduced to the serious Neel that studied under Rembrandt. He is also the person that Cornelia ends up with.
- "I cannot be a part of their world of ships d power and selfishness. I do not want to be." --- Cornelia realizes that the life she would have with Carel is not a life that she would be proud living. She wants to be honest and true; she does not want to sell people into slavery to make a buck.
- "I am learning." --- I feel like this is a very important quote from the book because it shows that even though the book has ended, her journey has not. She is still learning from her mistakes in the past.
