This month we are reading The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal for our Zoom Book Club. The Doll Factory is available on Borrowbox as an eBook or Audiobook and in your local library as a physical – please ask at your local library for help picking up a copy.
The Doll Factory is an evocative, historical novel set in Victorian London following Iris, a young painter at a Regent Street doll shop, painting faces on to china dolls, who encounters the thrilling artists of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and strives to follow her own artistic ambitions as their muse and trainee. In the shadow of the opening of the Great Exhibition, taxidermist Silas obsesses over Iris and her twin sister Rose in this dramatic tale capturing the grime and glories of Dickensian London.
