My thoughts

I enjoyed this book about circus life during the Great Depression. I especially like the way the author skillfully wove in historic facts such as an elephant not understanding English and the problem "jake leg" which was caused by tainted Jamaica ginger.

LOVED this book. Picked it up at a second hand book shop in Hamsted, which feels like years ago. It exceeded my expectations and my mum (whose read A LOT of books in her time and her opinion to me and many friends means a lot) loved it too! I also enjoy googling a book after reading and at the time the film was about to go into production...still haven't seen it...
