“The Circus Train” by Amita Parikh

Genre: Historical Fiction
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s SonsThe Circus Train
Pub. Date: December 6, 2022

As an infant, our heroine suffered from  Polio. We watch her fight to live a normal life. Well, as normal as can be for someone who grows up in a traveling circus. The blurb states that “The Circus Train” is a cross between “The Night Circus” and “Water for Elephants.” I enjoyed both of those books as I did “Train.” However, “Train” was more entertainment than historical fiction. The writing was lacking in comparison to the other two novels. Still, I did enjoy being entertained. It may not read believable but the magic, mystery, and love story in Nazi-occupied Europe kept my interest.

I received this Advance Review Copy (ARC) novel from the publisher at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
