Unravel the Mystery of “The Ladies of the Secret Circus”

Good day, dear readers!

The days are starting to get shorter, and fall is slowly starting to make its appearance. We have a few more weeks of summer yet, but that fall weather is beginning to nip in at night.

If you participated in our Summer Reading Program, don’t forget to turn in your reading sheets! We would like to get our winners chosen soon!

This month, we will be reading “The Survivors” by Jane Harper. This thriller will have you turning pages late into the night. If you plan to read late, prepare for that book hangover! I suffer at least one per week and let me tell you – those headaches and bags under the eyes are completely worth the many worlds that are visited and the stories that weave into your being.

Next month, we are going to be reading “The Ladies of the Secret Circus,” and it is a story that will travel between two different times. This story promises to be amazing. I hope that you will enjoy the journey that we will be taking! Constance Sayers is a fabulous storyteller, and this is one I think everyone will enjoy reading.

Grab your copies, check the blurb below, and join us for some great books!

Book Blurb for “The Ladies of the Secret Circus”

Paris, 1925: To enter the Secret Circus is to enter a world of wonder-a world where women tame magnificent beasts, carousels take you back in time, and trapeze artists float across the sky. But each daring feat has a cost. Bound to her family’s strange and magical circus, it’s the only world Cecile Cabot knows-until she meets a charismatic young painter and embarks on a passionate love affair that could cost her everything.

Virginia, 2005: Lara Barnes is on top of the world-until her fiancé disappears on their wedding day. Desperate, her search for answers unexpectedly leads to her great-grandmother’s journals and sweeps her into the story of a dark circus and a generational curse that has been claiming payment from the women in her family for generations.
