Publisher's Summary

If you live life without a net, what happens when you fall?

Kathleen Cremonesi knew early on she wanted to be different. Determined to avoid following in her mother’s footsteps to an ill-fated marriage, Kathleen left Oregon in her early 20s to travel across Europe. On a whim, this former administrative assistant with wanderlust took a job as a dancer in an Italian circus and, working her way up, became an ostrich-riding, shark-taming showgirl.

Kathleen bonds with the exotic animals that could strike and kill at any moment, but instead bring her a peace she has never known. And when she stumbles into the arms of Stefano, the sexy elephant keeper, she finds a man who understands her wild spirit.

With thrilling prose and vivid descriptions, Kathleen takes the reader around the Mediterranean, where she discovers unexpected friends and learns how to cook, forgive, and love - across language barriers.

Critic Reviews

“Kathleen's journey toward self-discovery is enthralling . . . the descriptions of life in the circus, the animals, and the spectacle put on every night vividly take readers into the experience.” (Publishers Weekly)

Great life lessons

This book took me through the turmoil of life lessons and the magic of performance life all in one sensual ride. Loved it.

Engaging at first, then tiresome

While this is an engaging and unusual life story, I tired of the back and forth of niggling relationship details. Ad nauseum potestations of “I don’t cook” seemed adolescent and uninteresting. Add to that, the narrator’s voice sounded adolescent and whiny, and nearly every sentence ended in vocal fry.

Lost in the story

Loved looking forward to her voice and story. I listened on the treadmill, runs and walks... can’t wait for her second book!!
