Read in July, 2010

This book leaves you with so much to think about once you've read the fnal page. It's about choices, tragedy, the harshness of the 1930's depression era, character, poverty, integrity, all aspects of the human condition, and of course circus life in the 1930's. I'm still thinking about the story several weeks after reading it. As the book jacket tells, it's gritty, and at times difficult to read particular events. It is very well researched by the author.
