Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants | SWH Summer Book Recommendations | Scoop.it

Recommended by Holly Maness

"This story is told by an elderly man in a nursing home, recalling his time as a young man working in a travelling circus. The flashbacks take place during the Great Depression, when Jacob Jankowski is suddenly orphaned just before he completes veterinarian school.  He suddenly finds himself as a runaway on a circus train. The detail that Gruen puts into her desciptions of circus life on the rails reveals that she spent much time researching the subject. The gritty circus life is a grand backdrop for the love story that develops."
