Litfuse Review: The Ringmaster's Wife by:Kristy Cambron
About the Book:
What is revealed when you draw back the curtain of the Greatest Show on Earth?
Rosamund Easling is no stranger to opulence. As the daughter of an earl, she’s grown up with every comfort money can buy. But when hard times befall the family’s Yorkshire estate in the aftermath of the Great War, Rosamund’s father sells her beloved horse, setting the stage for a series of events that would extend beyond even her wildest dreams.
Though expected to marry for a title instead of love, Rosamund feels called to a different life – one of adventure outside the confines of a ladies’ parlor. She abandons all she’s known and follows in pursuit as her horse is shipped to the new owner – an American entertainer by the name of John Ringling. Once introduced to the Ringling Brothers’ circus and knowing she has much to learn, Rosamund agrees to a bareback riding apprenticeship in the shadow of the Ringlings’ winter home—Ca’D’Zan. It is at that mansion, in what would become the last days of the enigmatic Mable Ringling’s life, that Rosamund finds a deeper sense of purpose in the life she’s been given, and the awakening of faith in her heart.
With a supporting cast of characters as mysterious and dazzling as the Ringlings’ big-top world, Rosamund’s journey takes her from the tradition of the English countryside to the last days of America’s Roaring ‘20s—a journey that forever changes what one life might have been.
Lady Rosamund Easling decides to board a ship to America after her horse is sold to the Ringling Brothers Circus. She hopes to only take care of her horse and then return home after her little adventure to get married to her arranged groom. But when she gets there, she finds everything is quite different from what she expected. Becoming a trick rider would probably be lots of fun. But is she to do? She has only one person to give her advice it's none other than the Queen of the circus herself, Mrs. Mable Ringling.
Mable Burton was just a small town farm girl looking for an adventure. Little did she know that when she meets a handsome man while waitressing, that she was about to get all the adventure she wanted. John Ringling was famous, everyone knew that he ran the world renowned Ringling Brothers Circus. Why in the world would he want something to do with little ole Mable?
Rosamund so left with a hard decision. Join the circus and leave behind the life of always being taken care of. Or go back to her dull life that has already been planned for her. Joining the circus would mean leaving behind her old life forever. Can she really take that chance?
The Ringmaster's Wife is an amazing book that takes you into the world of the Ringling Brothers Circus its self. I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved every aspect of this book. I love this author's work and I hope to read more from this author real soon.
