The Circus In Winter
Author: Cathy Day
From 1884 to 1939, the Great Porter Circus made the unlikely choice to winter in an Indiana town called Lima, a place that feels as classic as Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, and as wondrous as a first trip to the Big Top.

Mesmerizing fiction story of people involved in and around a circus, based loosely on a real circus in which the author's relatives were involved. Begins by telling about the owner's personal life and how it dictated his purchase of the circus and then moves forward a few years, then back, then forward many years, all tying together either performers or one particular family or even families who just lived in the town. Very well-written, especially since many of the stories are very sad. Great book.

A sweet collection of interrelated stories about the stars and crew, and family members of the Porter circus. The last story nicely ties all of the stories together and explains why everyday should be a circus day!
