Read full description of the books:
3.5 stars. Melissa breaks her leg in a fall from a tree and has to spend a long time in bed. The civil war has just ended so not only does Melissa have to lay still with planks tied to her leg she has to endure a visit from cousin Valerie from the opposing side stay with them. The cousin is manipulative and jealous of Melissa. Valerie is also jealous of the doll's house that her brother made for her to take her mind off not being able to play outside.
We enjoyed the descriptions of the dolls and their life in the doll's house. The author kept using the phrase ' papa doll's vapours swirled' we hadn't heard of this expression, presumably it means he felt worried, this way of describing doll anxiety did become annoying and I started to leave those words out as they were repeated so often. There are some parts that may seem dated but are probably realistic given the period of history the story was set in.
It was a fun read aloud, I would recommend this to readers who like doll stories and might be interesting to a child who has broken a bone and can't be physically active. We will read the next story soon which continues with the same dolls 100 yrs on.
