(2020)
A novel by

 
 
At the request of readers, and because she has lived a long time in the author's heart, Carolyn Wall again presents Love Alice Hanley, who first appeared in her novel Sweeping Up Glass (Poisoned Pen Press, Random House).

It's the 1930s, and here comes the UNDERDOWN CIRCUS AND CONGRESS OF ODDITIES. And here are responsibilities Love Alice doesn't want.
All she longs for is to be valued.
But her quest to find worth takes her through the troubled times of the Depression, and an amazing gaggle of folks - an Apache fire eater, dwarf trapeze artists, Maude the precious bearded lady, colonies of clowns and cooks, and Ollie Oxen Freedman who shares the outhouse he lives in - folks who have found their own safe place.

But loss lives in her belly. And now evil's afoot. With her own strange gift, does Love Alice even stand a chance?

From The Pride of Lions:
The wheel rips from its moorings and wobbles downhill, strung with lights so brilliant, it hurts to look. It trundles through my cabbages and flattens potatoes -- on past our house, till it hits the stone bridge. There it splinters and scatters, a pile of matchsticks and people.
I have seen it again.
But, then, I see a lot of things... .
