Orphans of the Carnival by Carol Birch Book PDF Summary

A life in the spotlight will keep anyone hidden. Julia Pastrana is the singing and dancing marvel from Mexico.

Orphans of the Carnival sweeps us from the music halls of Vienna to an attic in modern-day South London, playing out an epic tale of grit, love, music and the triumph of the human spirit pushed to extremes.
