Couldn't put it down!!

Pros:good story - fast paced and a quick read

Cons:none that I can think of - I loved it!

The Bottom Line: A great quick read! good story and a feel good ending!


This book was a fast paced read that I couldn't put down. From the moment I read the first two pages I was hooked and I finished the book in 1 sitting. The exciting events that take place within the first few pages of this book will grab your attention and won't let go until you've turned the last page.
The story revolves around a man who unexpectedly ends up being recruited as a vet for a circus during the Depression. He has a number of enemies, friendships, and adventures throughout his time in the circus but ultimately the story revolves around the relationship he develops with the main female character of the book. Through the course of the book - he of course finds love with a "forbidden" partner and their story unfolds with passion, suspense, and murder.
The book is told from the persepective of the main character as he is living out his final years as an elderly man in a nursing home.
The story is endearing - the main character is one you'll love and the ending is priceless! I would highly recommend this book as one to keep your attention and have you turning the pages until you reach the end!
