Synopsis

Jacob Janowski's luck had run out-orphaned and penniless, he had no direction until he landed on a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was the Great Depression and for Jacob the circus was both his salvation and a living hell. There he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but brutal animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this group of misfits was one of love and trust, and ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.

I loved this book. The author really draws you into the story with wonderful characters and a rich back drop. You get to know Jacob and cheer for him throughout the novel. I had trouble putting it down...

I found it a wonderful read. It was full of insight, made me laugh & made me sad, with a great ending.

I thought this was a great story - touched on issues of old age as well as the life in the 30s. The actors who read the story were great too. I really enjoyed it.

A superb book - a page turner. Could not put it down, yet did not want it to end!
