Cambron vividly depicts circus life during the 1920s, when the vast menagerie moved in 100-car trains and the Ringlings were establishing themselves in Sarasota, Fla., society. With a strong supporting cast of friends and family---including a nemesis or two---the women experience heartbreak, loss, hope, and triumph, all set against the colorful backdrop of the greatest show on Earth. * Publishers Weekly * 4 stars. 'Cambron takes a real person, Mable Ringling, and breathes fictional life into her while staying true to what is known about this compelling woman. The novel is an intriguing look into circus life in the 1920s. A bit more depth into the characters would have been desirable, but the author's gift for writing beautifully crafted sentences will draw readers into the story and the fascinating world of the circus.' * RT Book Reviews *
