Loved this family story, that has a touch of magic and a whole lot of melancholy. Mysterious old books, a crumbling home, complicated families, carnival folk, the ocean.... what‘s not to like!?
This story was written so beautifully. And I was drawn as equally to Simon the librarian's present day tale as he searches to uncover his family secrets, as I was to his ancestor's story of 1700's carnival life. Really lovely. 💕
