"Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier and being forced to give up her baby. She lives above a small rail station, which she cleans in order to earn her keep. When Noa discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she is reminded of the child that was taken from her. And in a moment that will change the course of her life, she snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night. Noa finds refuge with a German circus, but she must learn the flying trapeze act so she can blend in undetected, spurning the resentment of the lead aerialist, Astrid. At first rivals, Noa and Astrid soon forge a powerful bond. But as the facade that protects them proves increasingly tenuous, Noa and Astrid must decide whether their friendship is enough to save one another--or if the secrets that burn between them will destroy everything."--Amazon.com… (mer)

The ending broke me and truly converted it from the 4 stars I thought I was going to give this. ( )

A very interesting story when it comes to a circus travelling during WW2. A circus that harbors Jews which really happened. Also true is the part about the children taken and left in a boxcar bound for a concentration camp which is Theo in this novel. I did find the novel a bit to simple of a love story being a bit Harloquin in style but the redeption comes in the last chapter or two. I am interested in finding out more stories that the archives of Yad Vashem have. ( )

I tend to enjoy most of WW2 fiction books. This one barely made that list. It started out good, life before, during the war, and how love ones got separated. Then there was the circus which was interesting at first but I lost interest after a while. The characters are likable enough that I'm still listening to the book. Good ending. ( )

More on Chill and read

I love historical fiction set in the World War II, as it will be a means to display either man’s greatness or man’s monstrosity. It’s the time that reveals the best and worse in people, war, showing who they truly are! I always hope for the best, for the kindness and the bravery and altruism, but many a time I get the ugliness of this world, the greediness, the cheer that some people find in other people’s pain.

Noa is a sixteen year old girl that has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier. She is now living and working in a train station, after her born baby has been taken away from her and she has nowhere to turn. She is the only one of the train station employees that is living there. Everyone else has a home to return too, after the work is done. One day, during work, Noa discovers a boxcar full of infants. The guards that would normally be around cars carrying war prisoners are nowhere to be seen. The infants are left there all alone, some on top of others, only a few of them maybe still breathing. She cannot just leave them there, but she cannot save them all. She makes her mind in a second, snatches one of the babies and flees the scene. She hopes the snow will covers her tracks.

Noa finds unexpected shelter in a German circus. She is afraid of what might happen to her and the baby, especially since the baby is circumcised and there is no way to hide that he’s a Jew. Thankfully, the circus owner is a man of good heart and he will provide her the cover she needs. But she has to train herself on the flying trapeze and become part of the show. It’s the only way she can blend in with the circus folks and pass undetected. Her trainer is the lead aerialist of the circus. Astrid was born in the circus. She has been training on the trapeze since she was four years old. She does not think that Noa can succeed with only six weeks training. That’s the time they have until the first show of the season. But she must!

The trainer to trainee relationship between the two women starts as a rival competition. There is no trust in the beginning but it is being built as time goes by. Without trust, there is no way an aerialist to fly from the trapeze. Given the circumstances they meet each other and the things they have in common, the two women begin to bond and to understand each other more than they could ever imagine. They even confide to each other and this is what brings them closer. A friendship is being born in the middle of the war, between two women that are so different from one another.

It’s not so out of the blue that Noa manages it as an aerialist. She was training on gymnastics before she got pregnant so it all came back to her. She was accustomed to the discipline that is required. She just had to learn how to fly! Given her young age and the fact that her son was taken from her, it comes easily for her to try and save that baby and love it as her own, not giving a lot of thought to the consequences her action would have. Her kindness is one of the values very few people had in those times. Hers and the owner of the circus. He was brave and he was doing all in his power to protect his people! Skepticism was also found in large amounts, especially from those that were in danger. This is also visible in the book, in a way that fits in the story evenly.

I really like this book and I can’t wait to read more Pam Jenoff books! ( )

This is the heartbreaking tale and breathtaking story of 17 year old Noa, who is living in Holland during the Nazi occupation and is ostracized by her after becoming pregnant by a soldier...Noa is a vivid character who shows the true type of of inner strength such horrendous events inspired in real people. .......her writing is much of a gift as her public service.

Hounded by the Nazi menace, the Circus Neuhoff travels to a refuge in occupied France. Both Noa and Astrid find men whom they love and whom they must struggle to save. Through the darkness of war, the circus lights twinkle on, the circus family lives and loves and laughs, all while beautiful athletes fly high above the crowd. It may seem a bit too neat and Hallmarkian to some, but Jenoff has written a tribute to the human spirit that soars in the midst of epic despair.
