The story DOES jump back and forth a lot. This will be a book you need to stick with and not set down too long. It fanned my interest in the circus something awful! I had to make a trip to the Circus Museum in French Lick, IN :) Sure was glad I did, the dioramas are the best I have seen in my travels. Right up there with Gettysburg's cyclorama (the one they had in 2003). I love it when one book leads you to so much more!

This was a wonderful book. I enjoy historical what ifs? And how writers imbue voices to larger than life people of the past. At times I got a little confused when the story jumped back and forth between Andorra and Anna Swan, but it wasn't a big issue.
