Book Description

21 Sep 2006

Two sisters, tragically divided by love, jealousy and ambition ...

For Ruby and Rosetta Capretti life in the slums of the East End holds little promise. Although very similar in looks they dream of very different futures. Coquettish, flamboyant Rosetta is desperate to leave the claustrophobic confines of the sewing sweatshop to follow in her wayward aunt's footsteps and work under the bright lights of the music hall. Ruby, quieter and more modest has always longed to train as a nurse, a pipe-dream for a girl from her humble background.

And then, by the side of their father's grave, they meet handsome Jonas Crowe, but little do they know how much one man will affect both their lives forever ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've read in a long while! 18 Sep 2007
By A Moore
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In my opinion 'The Dollmaker's Daughters' is the best of Dilly Court books, although all of them have been really good reads.

Dilly draws you into the everyday life of her characters so much that you really feel as though they are a friend.

Definitely recommended, especially if you're a fan of historical books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just finished this Book 26 April 2011
By Ches
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I finished Dollmaker's Daughters just last night and I am now eagerly awaiting my next delivery from Amazon which I hope will be today with some more of Dolly Court's books. When I read her books I am in the story line with the characters and have to choose my times carefully to read otherwise I will get no housework done. If you like Josephine Cox or Rita Bradshaw books then you will love this Author.

If you have never read either Authors and you like gritty down to earth stories then these are the type of books for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read
The characters and story of The Dollmaker's Daughter grip you from the start. Dilly Court's books are very descriptive to the period and addictive in their content.
