Historical Fiction: Father & Daughter, Doll with Real Hair

des. 15, 2020, 11:15am

Hello all,

There is an adult patron at my library looking for a book for which she cannot recall the title or author. It was a historical fiction that she read maybe a couple of years ago (although who knows when the actual publication date might be); she does not remember what time period of history though. There is a father who travels away from home for work and a little girl who has a doll with real hair. That last point seemed to be the most salient for the patron.

It's not much to go on, but if anyone has any thoughts that would be much appreciated!

Sounds a little like The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. But only a little.

This probably isn't correct, but one book I know of that involves a doll w/ real hair is Doll Bones by Holly Black.
