Preview: Hear it

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 girls life.
