I m somewhere between 35 4 stars on this book I enjoyed this WWII story told through the uniue perspective of the traveling circus I read a lot of Holocaust novels and it always amazes me when I discover a completely different wartime perspective where brave men and women risked their lives to do the right thing by hiding Jews knowing it would end with prison torture or death for themselves if they were caught It always makes me uestion myself would I have been that brave during that time I can only hope I would have had even a small amount of the bravery of these unsung heroes I was shocked to learn that the circus sheltered Jews during the Holocaust circus owners and performers took major risks hiding Jews within their acts and in the backstage staff knowing they could be searched and found out at any random checkpoint along their travelsThis book started off really strong for me and was a 5 star read until I got about 23 of the way through I had a hard time fully connecting with the characters after that point I liked the characters and enjoyed their story but couldn t uite get to the point of being completely engrossed in their lives and decisions in the latter half of the book The believability of Noa and Luc s romance wasn t there for me It seemed too fast and convenient I liked both of their characters but the writing didn t fully pull me into their love story Regardless of this I still thoroughly enjoyed learning about the traveling circus during the war I cried while reading the Author s Note where she explains the background to her storyline The fact that the boxcar full of babies Unknown Children described in the novel is based on a true story is heartbreakingly hard to accept It is clear that the author Pam Jenoff has done an incredible amount of research to create this novel she weaves fact into this fictional story so seamlessly Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it although I enjoyed the author s novel The Kommandant s Girl much
