The Dodo Knight

“This book perfectly encapsulates the goal of historical fiction – it made me feel like it was written by someone who was there” - Review at Fill Your Bookshelf

“I have it on very good authority that a muse must have their heart broken six times before they can die.”

Alice Liddell was the muse for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. But before the book was published, a rift opened between Carroll and the Liddell family. Also dubbed the “Liddell Riddle,” historians still speculate as to what happened to separate the famous author and his muse. Michelle Rene has imagined a beautiful and heart-breaking story of a special friendship and its unfortunate end. Told from the viewpoint of Alice herself, The Dodo Knight will transport you to Victorian England… and into the heart of a very special little girl.
