Suspended is the first book in the The Vagabond Circus series by Sarah Noffke, and takes you into the realms of the Dream Travellers. The performers in the circus are all chosen by Dave, the Ringmaster. He has a vision of the perfect circus and does his best to bring it to fruition. He is helped with the arrival of Finley, and a new show starring him and Zuma. There is a potential triangle with Zuma, Finley and Jack, but luckily enough (for me) this doesn't detract from the intricate weave of this story.
So many things happen that I am struggling to find the words. It is emotional, painful, heartbreaking and yet hopeful. A story of love so innocent and pure and yet tainted by knowledge and actions at the same time.
With every book I read of Sarah Noffke's, my admiration for her as an author grows! To have this vision, and then to be able to put those words to page in such a way that grabs the reader from the very beginning, drawing them into that world, and making everything about it seem real, just astounds me.
Excellently written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I highly recommend this book.
