Set in the heart of the Vermont woods, where on the hottest days of summer the lake seems the center of all life, this lyrical mystery follows the life of a young girl at summer camp who, one day, inexplicably stumbles upon a circus. Lured by the sounds of a calliope, she finds, in the middle of the woods, a circus filled with dancers, handsome young acrobats, a gypsy fortuneteller, lion tamers . . . and life without time or change. In his first novel for children, Bill Littlefield explores the inevitablity of change in a young girl’s life.
