A powerful novel of friendship set in a traveling circus
during World War II, The Orphan's
Tale introduces two extraordinary women and
their harrowing stories of sacrifice and survival
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.
