Each evening, nestled in Berlin's Treptower Park, the immigrant circus comes to life.
"A provocative, heartfelt journey from the first page to the striking conclusion." ~ Alyssa Elmore, from Readers' Favorite Book Reviews
When Yusuf fled Syria, he lost everything. Now the circus, with its middle-eastern flair, is the only home he knows. When the lights go on, the refugees dazzle their audience, but off-stage tensions flare.
Ellie is passionate about the circus and drawn to its broken people. Even so, if she wants to keep her job at the newspaper, she must head up a campaign against it.
One night, in the midst of a show, two young circus boys come to blows. With the circus at risk of closure, Ellie must convince her readers that we can have compassion for those we fear, or Yusuf will be forced to uproot again.

About the Author
EDITOR: In 2014, I eased into editing. A critique group made its way onto my priority list. If a writer buddy needed a beta read, I jumped at the chance to apply a critical eye as well as positive reinforcement to the task. With every project I worked on, whether writing or offering constructive criticism, I aimed to improve my craft as I helped my fellow author. Becoming an editor wasn't my goal, but as I learned more about the mechanics of writing, a natural evolution occurred. My editing skills grew at a much more rapid pace than my writing skills did. Since 2014, I've edited countless anthologies, novels, and independent short works from various authors. I wish I had counted. That number would be pretty handy right about now. My primary focus is on speculative fiction, but I'm also interested in women's fiction and romance.

Wonderful Story Hidden Colours is a wonderful story that is very heart felt. I've read a previous work of Nasser and I wasn't disappointed in this one either. It's a great story that keeps the reader engaged with brilliant characters. Nasser brings culture and wondrous colors into an exciting page-turner. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a journey of life, love and humanity. Yusuf is a remarkable character and brings the characters to life. I look forward to reading more by this author.
