Love in the elephant tent: how running away with the circus brought be home

“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…With thrilling prose and vivid descriptions, Kathleen takes the reader around the Mediterranean. There, she discovers unexpected friends, learns how to cook, dance, and love -- across language barriers.” – from Melvyl description
