The Lovereading4Kids commentSet against a richly evoked historical background, The Unrivalled Spangles is a haunting and tragic romance played out within the world of the circus. Daughters of the ringmaster of Spangles Circus, Ellen and Lucy perform a bareback horse riding spectacular. But, behind the glitter and glamour of the ring the huge tensions between them lead them into intrigue and danger.
The Unrivalled Spangles by Karen WallaceThis is the dramatic and colourful tale of the Spangles, a nineteenth century circus family, and their lives, loves, romances and rivalries against the backdrop of London town. The story follows Ellen, the ringmaster's daughter and one half of horse-riding duo, The Incredible Scarletta Sisters, as she struggles to break with family tradition and get an education - and to hide her sister's secret romance with a rival circus owner's son...This is a beautifully written historical adventure, from the author of "Wendy and Raspberries on the Yangtze".
