Stmas Doll are indeed interesting enough and while it does paint a generally realistic enough picture of poverty and workhouse conditions ofin late 19th century London the story itself is just much too melodramatic and implausible for my own personal tastes For the painful and heartbreaking reality of the two orphaned sisters in all ways massively desperate plight is in my humble opinion rather trivialised and with that also much diluted by the fact that they very smoothly and seamlessly manage to escape from the workhouse almost immediately find a trusty friend and then of course a sympathetic doll making spinster to adopt them and thus The Christmas Doll feels like one is reading a fantasy a fairy tale than reality and while I do think that author Elvira Woodruff actually seems to consider her story as a piece of reality perhaps feel good reality but reality all the same personally I simply cannot see and feel this all that much myself That being said I was still considering ranking The Christmas Doll with a low three star rating until I stumbled upon the epilogue which is not only saccharine sweet to the extreme and even implausible than the main body of the narrative but also reads at least to me as something akin and alike to a homily or church sermon And thus while The Christmas Doll might well be of interest and enjoyable to those who like so called doll fiction and totally feel good Christmas stories for a tale that on the surface appears to strive to be realistic to and for me The Christmas Doll is simply much too sugar coated too good to be true to be than a two star reading experience at best 35 starsMy heart goes out to these two sisters and though the beginning is a bit hard to read because of the harsh conditions the middle of the book begins to warm things and by the end a cozy feeling leaves me satisfiedThere really isn t any magical powers in this story And it.

Read aloud to my daughter I would perhaps rate 3 but she thought nearer 4 stars This book had all the ingredients we love for a story orphans escape from cruel orphanage dolls christmas happy ending etc but it was so short and events happened in a uick and predictable way The escape from the orphanage was decided and then they escaped We would have liked to have been on the edge of our seats a bit enjoying their planning and wondering if they would make it There are some parts where the girls act selflessly that are unrealistic and bordering on the nauseating There were some historical inaccuracies and I was suprised that someone called someone else a tosspot I can only assume this has a different meaning in the US This book felt like it was a rough draft of what could be uite a fun story but really needed filling out with lots detail and day to day life We liked the idea of the doll shop though and lots of reviews are really positive about this book Heartwarming Classic Beautiful The first book I ever boughtI think I was in grade fourI still remember every page clearly because I read over 10 times it s very inspiring and sad at the same time I cried through the while book because it was just so touchingI love how lucy describes the little things that are so important to her being and orphan and her love towards her sister is what gave them the will to survive the cold London streetsMy dad has donated away my copy of this book I d pay anything to have a copy now My girls and I really enjoyed reading this together Set in 19th century London this story follows two The Violet Hour young orphaned sisters who find themselves alone and attempting to survive on the streets The starkness of their situation could be scary for some kids but my girls loved it Recommended for 6 10ear olds 35 stars While many if not most of the general themes of this slight little story of Elvira Woodruff s The Chri.
