Synopsis: The grandeur of the traveling circus is at its peak in the early 1920s when sixteen-year-old Laila Vilonia is searching for an escape from her bleak future. Behind the gates of the legendary Marvelle Circus, she is thrust into a mysterious world she never knew existed?a paradise populated with outcasts. It?s in this glamorous new home that Laila sparks a controversial romance with notorious sideshow performer, "The Disappearing Man," and learns just how dangerous her new life can be. Touring the picturesque eastern coast of America, Laila?s immersed in friendship, vaudeville, festivals, sequins, and serial killers. But behind the curtain, a sadistic plan is brewing that will crack the very foundation upon which she?s become so dependent.
From the Author: I began writing the Marvelle Circus books a couple of years ago, after I had started training in aerial arts (silks, trapeze, Spanish web, lyra, etc.). I loved aerials so much; it was all I wanted to talk about--except no one wanted to listen. Around the same time, I saw an episode of the TV show Oddities where they were talking about procuring items from the 1930's Coney Island Sideshow. I thought it would be interesting to write what the performers' lives must have been like with the added benefit that I could talk about aerials to my heart's content!
