The dollmaker by


  1. I read this book over twenty years ago and even though I don't remember many details from it, I DO remember it made a huge impact on me at the time, so much so that I have a copy of it on my "favorites" shelf in the living room. Maybe I'll reread it soon, now that you've reminded me of it. I don't at all mind sadness in books if the story is rich and satisfying. Sometimes sadness is necessary – and oh! – I'm just remembering some of the Dollmaker story right now, especially the way it started out. Ohhh… yes. Sadness, but so good. Another wonderful heart-wrenching novel is The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck (I love his work). Have you read it?

    1. Yeah, it's sad, but it doesn't glory in the sadness, if that makes sense. I haven't read The Grapes of Wrath, but I did really enjoy East of Eden by Steinbeck when I read it, so maybe it is one to take a look at.
