On a summer evening in 1931, young Lilly Blackwood is sold by her mother to a circus side-show. Two decades later, nineteen-year-old Julia Blackwood has inherited her parents' estate and horse farm. Moving between Julia and Lilly's stories, Ellen Marie Wiseman portrays two extraordinary, very different women in a novel that, while tender and heartbreaking, offers moments of joy and indomitable hope.
