It was the early part of the Great Depression, and for Jacob the circus was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was there that he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an untrainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this unlikely trio was ultimately their only hope for survival.

    Un libro Cautivante

    No lo voy a negar al principio, el prologo daba entender algo totalmente diferente pero al final se entiende la razon fundamental. Marlena y Jacob se ven empujados a consumar lo prohibido para los dos debido a los celos excesivos de August, y a la final fue un mal entendido. La crueldad de August y Tio Al se siente a flor de piel. La codicia y los excesos no tienen limites, la muerte de un ser humano para ellos no tienen valor y peor la de un animal indefenso. Por otro lado Jacob ya de mayor y en el geriatrico te hace pensar en los principios y valores de la familia. Es un libro totalmente cautivante, vale la pena leerlo.
