So if you need help choosing a book this autumn, you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome to The Motherload®® Book Club!
Each month we’ll choose one book, and get together at 8.30pm on the first Monday of the following month, to chat about it on Facebook. There’s no pressure to do it every month, and there’s loads of other book-related chat on the group – you can join here now!
Our next read-along, to be discussed on Monday 7th December at 8.30pm in The Motherload®® Book Club is…
The Doll Factory by Elizabeth MacNeal
London, 1850. On a crowded street, the dollmaker Iris Whittle meets the artist Louis Frost. Louis is a Pre-Raphaelite painter who yearns to have his work displayed in the Royal Academy, and he is desperate for Iris to be his model. Iris agrees, on the condition that he teaches her to paint.
Dreaming of freedom, Iris throws herself into this new life of art and love, unaware that she has caught the eye of a second man. Silas Reed is a curiosity collector, enchanted by the strange and beautiful. After seeing Iris at the site of the Great Exhibition, he finds he cannot forget her.
As Iris’s world expands, Silas’s obsession grows. It is only a matter of time before they meet again.
