    The ringmasters wife

    The book was very well written for a semi/historical story. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and read it in two days because I couldn't put it down. If you enjoy looking back to what things were like and enjoy a great romance, I suggest reading this book.

    Under the Big Top

    I throughly enjoyed my visit to the Big Top and getting to know real life John and Mable Ringling and fictional Colin Keary and Lady Rosamund Easling. The story follows the Ringlings from the late 1800s to the late 1920s. The fictional characters of Colin and Rosamund begin around the early 1920s. Kristy Cambron writes with a back and forth, one chapter to the next telling until all four characters lives are intertwined. Mable and Rosamund are similar in that instead of dreaming of what they want, they go in search of their dreams. They face some loss, some hurt, even some physical pain but also romance in their lives. Also there is an underlying theme of forgiveness for past mistakes and hurts. I enjoyed learning about the time period and the behind the scenes workings of the circus. The author put lots of research and interviews to work to make for a real life telling of not only the Ringling Family but also about the circus. I found myself grabbing my tissues a few times, especially at the end. Emotional, happy, and sometimes sad, all the makings of a really great novel! I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review, either positive or otherwise.

    The Ringmaster's Wife

    I love the time period this book is set in- the early twentieth century- and books about circus life during this time can be especially compelling. The idea of the travelling circus by train is a romantic notion and it's fun to visit the time period of the height of its popularity. With all the that said, I found this an easy, entertaining read with likeable enough characters. The hint towards a conspiracy was slightly unbelievable, though the fierce competition among performers is. The dual story lines were entertaining and it was fun to see how they intersected though I enjoyed one of the characters much more than the other. Overall, I recommend for a fairly well-written, entertaining read though Water for Elephants is by far my favourite read on this particular subject and my preferred between the two. I'd give it three and a half stars instead of just the three.
