It was the spring of 1965, and Sarah, the carnival cook, has returned to Prairie Bluff, Wisconsin where she managed The Prairie Bluff Inn and Amphitheater. Her fiancé was a musician and sang in the house band. But when a plane crash took his life and the life they had planned together, she ran from painful memories and lost dreams. Even though she wants to stay, she’s now married to Frank, the carnival’s creature whisperer. And she’s discovered her family tree has a complicated branch. Her decision to stand in the darkness or the light will affect not only her, but the safety of the carnival and those she loves. Will she be able to protect the carnival and her family, or will they need protection from her?
