Miss Liberty Joy

I would like to introduce my new doll, Miss Liberty Joy.

She lives in Portsmouth, England with her nine brothers and sisters during the time of the Napoleonic Wars. She is 17 and has a twin brother, Matthew, who joined the Royal Navy. Besides Matthew, Liberty has one older and three younger brothers, two older and two younger sisters.

Liberty LOVES writing letters to Matthew when he is at sea. She also loves playing with her younger siblings, talking with the older ones, and adventure where ever she kind find it. She enjoys spending time with her family and the few friends she has.

Liberty has oil cloth boots and a beautiful, old, red polka dot dress that is one of her favorites. She has long blond hair, that, when down, looks like the golden wheat of summer. She has bright blue eyes that are so soft and gentle you would think that she could never get upset at anyone.

Liberty's mother died a year ago after giving birth. Liberty's oldest sister, Julianna, has been married for three years. Liberty has been left to do the house work, with a little help here and there from siblings. Liberty always loved helping her mother and Julianna in the kitchen, so when the burden was laid on her she did not mind much. She would rather be working in the kitchen than out looking for something to do.

There are times when she gets the house work done early and she will head over to her father and uncle's silversmith shop. She spent many hours there as a girl watching, sometimes helping, her father and uncle. Once her mother died and her sister moved out, she could no longer spend the time she did when she was a girl.

Liberty is always ready to make new friends. She is very excited to be part of this circle of friends.
