In Nazi-occupied Holland, 17-year-old Noa snatches a baby from a train bound for the concentration camps, fleeing with him into the snowy wilderness surrounding the train tracks. Passing through the woods is a German circus - a troupe of waifs and strays, led by the infamous Herr Neuroff. They agree to take in Noa and the baby, on one condition: to earn her keep, Noa must master the flying trapeze - under the tutorage of mysterious aerialist Astrid. Soaring high above the crowds, Noa and Astrid must learn to trust one another...or plummet. But with the threat of war closing in, loyalty can become the most dangerous trait of all.
''Wonderfully compelling.... The story grips from the very first page, and the atmosphere of the circus is entrancing - you feel all the terror and thrill of the flying trapeze.'' (Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldier's Wife)
