At times decadent and macabre, The Ladies of the Secret Circus is a mesmerizing tale of love, treachery, and depraved magic percolating through four generations of Cabot women
Luanne G. Smith author of <i>The Vine Witch</i>
Sayers weaves romance, mystery and a family curse into a spellbinding historical fantasy that stretches from 1920s Paris to modern-day America. Fans of Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus will love this page-turning story of dark magic, star-crossed love, and familial sacrifice
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Ambitious and teeming with magic, Sayers creates a fascinating mix of art, The Belle Époque, and more than a little murder
Erika Swyler, author of <i>The Book of Speculation</i>
Encompassing as many genres as a circus carousel has animals to ride, this is ultimately a story about love. Highly recommended for lovers of timeslip fiction, readers who enjoy their genres very bent indeed, and those who have dreamed of running away to the circus
Library Journal (starred review)
The Ladies of the Secret Circus is a book to get lost in . . . a story that feels like sitting down with an older relative and slowly, over hours, getting all the family secrets in one juicy, enchanted package
