Title: Clockwork Dollhouse
Author: Jordan Elizabeth
Narrator: Lisa Hicks
The clockwork dolls seem to be moving on their own. What are they trying to show?
When Ainsley moves in with her uncle, the governor, it seems like a beautiful situation. An orphan is finding love in an elite household. However, she carries with her the power to reveal her uncle’s darkest secrets.
Ainsley was an awesome character. I always love stories that have a kickass protagonist, and Ainsley fit that. The situation she was in was a rough one. As an orphan, it was up to her to reveal everything that her Uncle had done to their family, Ainsley’s mother included. The dolls her mother left behind carry all the clues to unlock every secret that Ainsley wants to bring to light.
Short, sweet, and full of suspense, this is an excellent little steampunk short story. Narration was spot on.
