I was left wanting MORE! It has a bit of a slow pick up as you get to know the comings and goings of the vaudeville life, but once I was deep in it I was IN LOVE! I absolutely adore period books and this one didn't disappoint. It really put me in the mind frame of the characters and their nomadic life, I felt their worries and victories and rooted for them every step of the way! The sisterly love is beautifully portrayed as was their tenacious and brave mother. And all the secondary characters are just as good (or bad!). The only complaint I have about this books it's that it's over too soon. #greedyreader I would love to follow along with the girls some more... Keeping this simple for fear of spoilers but I would love to follow along with their boys as well, some of their endings will have me worrying and wondering forever!
