rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a good story that compelled me to spend the better part of a weekend reading it. I thought the author evoked the time period and the circus setting well. Circuses have always attracted me and repelled me,almost simultaneously, and I had a similar reaction to the book. Although I am quite biblically literate, I found no parallels to the Jacob story. I liked the way the story was told, from Jacob's perspective at the end of his life, and I loved the relationship that developed between Jacob and Rosemary.
