Description

Jacob was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Now he's ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. It was there that he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian, and he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond among this unlikely trio was one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.

Review Text

El joven Jacob lo ha perdido todo: familia, amigos, futuro... A su alrededor, el mundo parece desmoronarse entre las penurias y la crueldad de los difíciles años treinta. Jacob decide cambiar de vida, y se aventura a trabajar en un circo ambulante como veterinario. Allí encontrará la amistad en el fascinante espectáculo de los hermanos Benzini, a la traviesa elefanta Rosie y al amor de su vida. Muchos años después, Jacob no se resigna a abandonarse al destino. Con renovada valentía nos revelará un secreto impactante y decidirá emprender nuevas andanzas, cueste lo que cueste.«Una arrebatadora nueva novela... Con el ritmo experto de un showman, Gruen se reserva una revelación genial para las páginas finales, transformando una imagen de la cultura americana en una encantadora fábula escapista.»
