First be aware this book has scenes with hookers and they are a bit graphic. I skipped them but could tell they were that way. With that being said this book has a gripping plot and holds a creepy fascination for readers. One review said it was a grotesque but yet romantic view of circus life and it is exactly right. The romance is charming, characters static and a bit predictable, elephant is a story-stealer. All based on history too! Circus life was harsh, racism ruled, and gripping.
