For fans of Orphan Train and Water for
Elephants, a compelling historical novel from â€śone of
the best authors of womenâ€™s fictionâ€ť (Library
Journal). Set against the turbulent backdrop of American
Vaudeville, four sisters embark on an unexpected
adventureâ€”and a last-ditch effort to save their family.
Itâ€™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
rentâ€”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 awakeningâ€”to unexpected possibilities, to love
and heartbreak, and to the dawn of a new American era.
