Circus Dreams

Ever dreamt about running away and joining the circus. Sara Gruen's new novel, Water For Elephants, takes place in the Great Depression. Jacob is 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 one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.
