Summary

La embriagadora historia de una joven que aspira a convertirse en artista y del hombre que, obsesionado con ella, amenaza con destruir su mundo para siempre.

Londres, 1850. La hermosa Iris trabaja, junto a su hermana, como aprendiz en el famoso taller de muñecas de la déspota señora Salter, pero su pasión es el arte. Cuando el pintor Louis Frost le pide que pose para él como modelo, ante ella se abre un mundo nuevo en el que, quizás, consiga su sueño de convertirse también en pintora.

Sin embargo, su destino se truncará cuando Silas, un solitario taxidermista y coleccionista de curiosidades morbosas que está en contacto con el mundo artístico londinense, descubre la existencia de Iris durante la inauguración de la Gran Exposición Universal de Londres. La obsesión de Silas por Iris irá creciendo y tornándose cada vez más oscura, hasta que solo aspire a convertirle en la pieza estrella de su colección.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

'A sharp, scary, gorgeously evocative tale of love, art and obsession'.- Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train

The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal is the intoxicating story of a young woman who aspires to be an artist, and the man whose obsession may destroy her world for ever.

London. 1850. The greatest spectacle the city has ever seen is being built in Hyde Park, and among the crowd watching two people meet. For Iris, an aspiring artist, it is the encounter of a moment – forgotten seconds later, but for Silas, a collector entranced by the strange and beautiful, that meeting marks a new beginning.

When Iris is asked to model for pre-Raphaelite artist Louis Frost, she agrees on the condition that he will also teach her to paint. Suddenly her world begins to expand, to become a place of art and love.

But Silas has only thought of one thing since their meeting, and his obsession is darkening . . .
