  • Not for me

    Gruesome. Cruel. Not a good read. Painful and made me sorry I purchased it.

  • The life she was given

    Excellent, well written, and a great story... I have read a fair bit about elephants and their family structure, and I found the book to be very factual, but with the plus of the Circus freaks and how they were treated....

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Life She Got

    I thught this was a beautiful story, which captured my attention early on. The story naturally evolved, although near the end it became easier to guess the results. The end left me craving more and will likely be stuck in my head

  • Unexpected

    I started reading this book, wondering how attic-bound Lily would relate to the circus theme described in the synopsis. I never expected the connection that would eventually be made. The story, as it unfolded, was absorbing. Alternating chapters focusing on each of the 2 main characters was very effective. The events leading up to the climax of Lily's life with the circus were gripping, and I expected the book was over. The second climax in the book was totally unexpected and amazing to me. This was an excellent novel by an author I look forward to reading again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Needed to do more research

    I don’t know where she got her information about the horse business but the part about taking foals away from their mothers and giving them to nurse mares is pure fiction. BroodMares come into heat around 9 days after foaling. They are then bred or are bred on their 30 day heat. Nursing a foal has nothing to do that. Consequently it makes no sense to take away a foal and give it to another mare.

    Thanks for your feedback!
