I must admit, I don’t read many books with a circus as the setting. So I guess you could say this one was a bit of a stretch for me. Still, it’s historical fiction which is my favorite genre so…
Two women thrown together in the unlikeliest of circumstances. Young Noa finds herself cast out and alone after a one night stand with a Nazi solder leaves her pregnant and a disgrace to her family. Astrid finds herself in the same situation after her marriage ends. They both find their way to the circus. Astrid has been here before. She did, after all, grow up as the child of circus performers. For Noa, it’s all strange and scary. But she has to protect not only herself but the young baby she’s caring for. Both women have much to lose.
This is a story of friendship, of love and loss. It’s a story of hardship and resilience. But most of all, it’s a story you won’t soon forget.
