For fans of Orphan Train and Water for
Elephants, a compelling historical novel from “one of
the best authors of women’s fiction” (Library
Journal). Set against the turbulent backdrop of American
Vaudeville, four sisters embark on an unexpected
adventure—and a last-ditch effort to save their family.
It’s 1919, and the Turners are barely scraping by. When
their father loses his job, their irrepressible mother
decides that vaudeville is their best chance to make the
rent—and create a more exciting life for herself in the process.
Traveling by train from town to town, teenagers Gert,
Winnie, and Kit, and recent widow Nell soon find a new kind
of freedom in the company of performers who are as diverse
as their acts. There is a seamier side to the business,
however, and the young women face dangers and turns of fate
they never could have anticipated. Heartwarming and
surprising, The Tumbling Turner Sisters is ultimately
a story of awakening—to unexpected possibilities, to love
and heartbreak, and to the dawn of a new American era.
