Today I am reviewing The Ringmaster’s Wife, by Kristy Cambron.
Here is a brief synopsis:
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.
This is the first book I’ve read by Kristy Cambron . . . but it certainly won’t be the last.
The Ringmaster’s Wife is a wonderful story of the beginning of faith. After her father sells her horse, and it is shipped to John Ringling, an American entertainer, Rosamund Easling travels from her home in Yorkshire, to America, and agrees to a bareback riding apprenticeship.
Kristy Cambron does a superb job with magnificent details throughout the book. Don’t miss this spectacular story!
God Bless You!
