Circus is family.
This book reminds me of that feeling you get when you see an aerial acrobats show for the first time, and you marvel at all of the feats that people can accomplish with their bodies.
This book manages to encapsulate all of the hard work, struggles, and the high-flying joy that comes with being a circus performer.
The romance between Nikolai and Thora evolves quite naturally from their innate chemistry, but the story is themed around the hard work, in both their romance and their careers in the circus.
I came away from reading this book with an urge to book myself onto an aerial hoop class.
You will love this novel, just sayin’.
