Summary
Amsterdam, 1631: Sara de Vos, a mother and painter, loses her young daughter suddenly to illness. In her grief, she secretly begins painting a dark landscape of a girl watching a group of ice skaters from the edge of a wood. New York City, 1957: Martijn de Groot has At the Edge of a Wood hanging above his bed.

In Brooklyn, struggling art student Ellie Shipley accepts a commission to paint an intricate forgery of de Vos' sole surviving work. Sydney, 2000: Now a celebrated art historian and curator, Ellie Shipley is mounting an exhibition in her field of specialization: female painters of the Dutch Golden Age. When it becomes apparent that both the original At the Edge of a Wood and her forgery are en route to her museum, the life she has carefully constructed threatens to unravel entirely and irrevocably
