Summary
  • An ounce of courage. A split-second leap of faith. Together, they propel two young women to chase a new life--one that's reimagined from what they might have become. In turn-of-the-century America, a young girl dreams of a world that stretches beyond the confines of a quiet life on the family farm. With little more than her wit and a cigar box of treasures to call her own, Mable steps away from all she knows, seeking the limitless marvels of the Chicago World's Fair. There, a chance encounter triggers her destiny--a life with a famed showman by the name of John Ringling. A quarter of a century later, Lady Rosamund Easling of Yorkshire, England, boards a ship to America as a last adventure before her life is planned out for her. There, the twenties are roaring, and the rich and famous gather at opulent, Gatsby-esque parties in the grandest ballrooms the country has to offer. The Jazz Age has arrived, and with it, the golden era of the American circus, whose queen is none other than the enigmatic Mable Ringling. When Rosamund's path crosses with Mable's and the Ringlings' glittering world, she makes the life-altering decision to leave behind a comfortable future of estates and propriety, instead choosing the nomadic life of a trick rider in the Ringling Brothers' circus. A novel that is at once captivating, deeply poignant, and swirling with exquisite historical details of a bygone world, The Ringmaster's Wife will escort readers into the center ring, with its bright lights, exotic animals, and a dazzling performance that can only be described as the greatest show on earth!"--
  • "What is revealed when you pull back the curtain of the greatest show on earth?"--

Summary
Juggling two story lines, author Kristy Cambron tells how two very different women leave their regular worlds behind and their journeys take them to the Big Top. First, farm girl Mabel meets and marries John Ringling and becomes the queen of the circus. Years later, England's Lady Rosamund Easling travels to America, following the beloved horse that her father, needing money, has sold to the Ringlings. Once at the circus, Rosamund becomes a bareback rider and falls in love, but there are serious challenges she must face along the way. Blending fact and fiction with subtle religious themes, this lyrical look at circus life during the jazz age is sure to please historical fiction fans. -- Description by Dawn Towery
