A paper heart is caught in the wind. It flutters from the fingers of a little girl who had been practicing writing her name on it: MathildaMathilda.
The heart lifts and the breeze blows it into the air.
On the hill, overlooking the sea, Nelly works in her artist’s studio. A twin who has lost her sister. Their childhood doll sits in a bag, forgotten. But in the bag is not one dolls head…but two! The heart blows through the window and gently lands on the dolls breast. MathildaMathilda opens her eyes, rolls them around and starts… she is alive! But what is she?
This is an adventure story.
A story of connection, and of separation. A tale of two heads are better than one. Of sea-side towns, urban jungles, exploding paint factories, and of a wicked Ring-Mistress with a forgotten past.
The story of MathildaMathilda.
