About the Book

Exuberant and gifted teen, Valthea Sarosi, reads people’s pasts. The determination to find her birth parents, headline a circus, and experience true love, lead her to perform at festivals throughout Romania with a Gypsy troupe and an Eastern Europe, Cirque du Soleil-style circus. Valthea and Sorin Dobra, the Gypsy troupe’s fire-juggler with med-school ambition, fall in love. Childhood abandonment bonds the fair-haired Sorin, adopted by the Gypsies, and Valthea, adopted by the elderly woman who found her in the woods. In her rise to stardom, naturally empathetic Valthea, encounters jealousy, obsession, and bullying. But when Valthea’s loved-ones are threatened, will she be able to access her paranormal prowess or be forced to rely solely on heart and wit?
