Clementine the doll, from A Girl for All Time, came out 2 years ago.  But her book was just released this summer!  I finished reading it a few weeks ago and I really really liked it!  It was so nice to get to know Clementine better.

This book is my favorite of the 3 A Girl For All Time books.  It has a mystery element, but we are spared the topics of toileting and taxidermy, so it’s much less creepy than the other two.  The author, Sandra Goldbacher, has a screenwriting background, so her writing is delightfully concise, yet descriptive.

Isn’t this illustration gorgeous?

And we’re given an introduction to Lydia’s book, which will be published in 2016!  It’s called Lydia in the New World.  She goes to Boston and meets a Native American.  I wonder how Lydia gets to America in the 18th century, and at what point the Marchmont family returns to Britain, where Clementine lives.

I also wonder if Sam, the next character, is Clementine’s daughter or niece.  If Sam is a young girl in the 60s and Clementine grew up during WWII, then it adds up!  I wonder if Clementine will have a role in Sam’s story!  I know my Clementine doll is excited to pass the key to the Marchmont trunk on to Sam, who should be here by the end of the year.

I still wish the A Girl For All Time collection had more clothes, because the few outfits each doll has are all beautiful.  I want more!

Check out what my dollies are up to this weekend!  Here are Amelia and Clementine enjoying an ice cream treat.  Doesn’t the backdrop look amazing?  It’s from Samantha’s Scenes and Settings.  The table and ice cream are from a set from American Girl–2007 or so.  Adorable! ice cream parlor 001

Matilda is the first doll in the A Girl For All Time line.  She lives in Tudor England.  Her cousin is Katherine Howard, the 5th wife of Henry VIII, and she is invited to join her court.  Here she is in her costume for the masquerade ball:

Today we meet Amelia Elliot, a beautiful girl from Victorian London. I bought her from www.agirlforalltime.us and she is gorgeous.  She has a book called Amelia’s Inheritance.  She arrived at my house on the day before Thanksgiving 2012.  A Girl For All Time is a pretty young company, and right now Amelia only has 2 outfits (3 if you count the outfit she comes in), but they’re both great.  Her Victorian Party Dress looks great in front of the new Gala Party Scene from American Girl:


And here’s a closeup of her beautiful rosy cheeks:


I love these dolls, and the whole idea of the A Girl For All Time line.  I can’t wait for Clementine to be released this September, and whatever dolls will come after that.

Julia’s wearing the same dress she wore last week, but this week Amelia and Matilda from A Girl For All Time borrowed a couple of Julia’s dresses (Matilda’s wearing the dress Julia came in and Amelia’s wearing the Edwardian Tea Dress).  Julia is about 2 inches taller than the A Girl For All Time dolls, but only a little bit fatter, so the dresses fit pretty well.  Tea Party Time!
