It took me forever to find the right image for this story. It’s by the London artist, Frederick Walker (1840-1875) who Millais apparently referred to as, “the greatest artist of the century”. As terrible as it is to play favorites with one’s children, I have to say, this story’s right up there. The Dollmaker’s Daughter comes out September 7th.
My little tale is now out. Here’s the link to it on Amazon. By the way, it’s free on Amazon Sept 11th and 12th only.
