This is the story of The Greatest Funambulist Who Ever Lived…
Born into a post-war circus family, our nameless star was unwanted and forgotten, abandoned in the shadows of the big top. Until the bright light of Serendipity Wilson threw her into focus.
Now an adult, haunted by an incident in which a child was lost from the circus, our narrator, a tightrope artiste, weaves together her spellbinding tales of circus legends, earthy magic and folklore, all in the hope of finding the child… But will her story be enough to bring the pair together again?
If you are after a magical and spell binding story then this is the one for you, as long as you use your imagination you are in for a real treat. The main character is called Mouse and I felt as though it was Mouse that was in search of something, both abstract and concrete. Then comes in Serendipity what a incredible name, she teaches Mouse to become a funambulist which I did not know what it meant. It is a tightrope walker. The side of the circus was interesting to me with a mixture of different characters with their own stories. I liked this story it made me feel dreamy like did I read this book or not? Unless that is to do with the spell binding and magical way to this story. A captivating story that I want to read all over again.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
