"An absolute charmer."—Library Journal Starred Review

"Simply put, this is a ripsnorting good historical yarn full of circus lore, so smartly told by an expert storyteller that it’s the kind of book truly deserving that overused term ‘page-turner.’"—Chicago Sun-Times

"With no safety net, Raleigh takes a spectacular highwire route…making it all look easy in this captivating tale of a decent man in a very hard world. Beguiling, wise and wonderful."—Kirkus Reviews Starred Review

"A heartwarming, often humorous story filled with interesting circus lore as well as deeper themes about the value of human connection, especially as life winds down."—Booklist

"Rollicking, warmhearted...As dramatic and engaging as a high-wire act, the novel combines honest story-telling with down-home wit. There’s plenty of smartly written, feel-good fun under this big top."—Publishers Weekly
