Staff Reviews

This is a beautiful story about love, friendship, elephants, the circus, and a mystery concerning a family history of abuse. The story is told by two women, with equally compelling voices, decades apart. It's heartbreaking, with moments of joy. I like having my heart tugged by what I’m reading, but if you’ve enjoyed my other recommendations, you'll love this one.

— Clytia


On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom. She's never even ventured beyond her narrow room and Momma insists it's for Lilly's own protection. People would be afraid if they saw her. But on this unforgettable night, Lilly is taken outside for the first time -- and sold to the circus sideshow.
