The Bounce

by Betsy Tobin

From the award-winning author of BONE HOUSE...An extraordinary novel of love, death and lions, set in the glamorous and squalid circus world of London in the 1870s.


Nineteen-year-old Nathan crosses the Atlantic in search of the mother who abandoned him as a young child. He takes a job in a circus south of the Thames, where he is quickly caught in a complex web of desire.


THE BOUNCE is gripping, vivid, powerfully evocative: a stunning story of mothers and sons, rejection and belonging, and the treacherous pull of love.
