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!
