|aIn the course of her first hundred years, the peddler-carved doll Hitty travels from Boston to India, is abandoned for years in an attic,is shipwrecked in the South Seas, meets President Abe Lincoln, and atone point lives with a snake charmer. Seen through her hand-painted eyes, the 19th-century world is a miraculous and usually wonderful place, with some mysteries never to be fathomed.
