This was an amazing story!

The author created a beautiful, believable story that was entertaining and touching.
The characters are strong, relate well and are enjoyable as if you met them in real life. And as strong as they are, you just might have!

Bitter-sweet in many ways because of Jacob's loss and the trials he goes through with the circus, and the suffering of others he feels, the sweet moments, the good times, are made that much more so by the struggles.

The amazing ending makes this book one in a million, and has you picking it back up again and again to enjoy the story of Jacob that is just as refreshingly adventurous as the first time you read it.

A must read for anyone!
