Summary

A dazzling mixture of crime, romance, magic and myth from the acclaimed author of The Psychology of Time Travel.

The Kendrick family has been making world-famous dolls since the early 1800s. But their dolls aren't coveted for the craftmanship alone. Each one has a specific emotion laid on it by its creator. A magic that can make you feel bucolic bliss or consuming paranoia at a single touch. Though founded by sisters, now only men may know the secrets of the workshop.

Persephone Kendrick longs to break tradition and learn the family craft, and when a handsome stranger arrives claiming doll-making talent and a blood tie to the Kendricks, she sees a chance to grasp all she desires.

But then, one night, the family's most valuable doll is stolen. Only someone with knowledge of magic could have taken her. Only a Kendrick could have committed this crime....

Engaging but maybe lacked a little

I really enjoyed this book & listened on audible in just 3 days. I just finished it feeling a little bit unresolved? Wanting more? I’m not really sure. Once again this book ticked a lot of boxes for me, slight magical element to a “real world” story. I liked characters and the dynamics between them. Overall a quick listen (read) that I really enjoyed.

Exceptional, unique & spellbinding

A very different listen. Chilling, sad & an interesting way to tell a tale of change. Quite relevant to our times. A definite for listening again.
