When Jacob’s life falls apart in one short afternoon, he is left with no home, no plans and no hope. He joins the circus and suddenly there is hope and a future.

Water for Elephants is at once an intriguing peek behind the scenes of a Depression-era circus and an adventurous story of lust and love. Gruen’s graphic depiction of the often violent lifestyle and her detailed descriptions of characters and setting offer a wonderful journey. Be careful-this book is hard to put down!
