Julie Nice, Nancy. I was quite mesmerized with your review. I'll be re-reading the actual book soon, this fall, because I was always somewhere in the middle with it, and I want to see how I feel about it as an adult. And, FYI, I did own one of the Madame Alexander dolls--Amy, because my grandmother liked the blonde. I wanted Jo!

Nancy Thanks, Julie. I thought about buying myself Jo, but my other dolls are needing a doll hospital and restringing so haven’t. But she is available on eBay!
I read LW sometime back, but after viewing the BBC series and reading this book, perhaps I will read it yet again this year.

Julie Nancy,
There isn't a doll hospital on this planet that can bring back life to my doll, Amy. She's beyond repair! Looks like my childhood Pekingese may have used her once as a chew toy.

Nancy Oh my! In 1959 my grandmother gave me a Sleeping Beauty doll that Madame Alexander had when the Disney movie came out. I took it down the street to show it to my best friend. My dog followed me and DID chew the doll up! Twenty years ago I bought myself a replacement doll.

Toni Nancy, I cherish your excellent review. This book and others like it are part of our history, and therefore the history of the women they represent; which is so important. As Rory Gilmore was an influence to my daughter during her younger teen years. They all matter to women regardless the decade or medium.

Nancy Thanks Toni! How nice your daughter had Rory. We loved her too.
