The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal is the intoxicating story of a young artist, and the man whose obsession may destroy her world. Menna Van Pragg’s The Sisters Grimm is the story of four daughters born to different mothers on the same day. Having been separated, it is imperative that they find each other once again.
