We are delighted to share that Elizabeth Macneal’s bestselling second novel, Circus of Wonders, is published in paperback in the US today (Simon & Schuster / Emily Bestler Books).

An addictive novel about power, fame, and a love that is threatened by a terrible secret, Circus of Wonders is set in a spectacular circus in the pleasure gardens of Victorian London. It originally published in the UK in May 2021, where it jumped into the No.1 position on the Sunday Times bestseller list. Circus of Wonders first published in the US in hardback earlier this year, prompting some truly shining quotes:

‘A colorful historical brimming with action and psychological conflict’ Publishers Weekly 

‘An engrossing novel, which captivates from beginning to end’ The Historical Novel Society

‘As moving as it is deeply entertaining’ Daniel Mason, New York Times bestselling author

Elizabeth’s debut novel, The Doll Factory, also achieved huge success: it was selected by the New York Public Library as one of the best historical fiction novels of the year in 2019, and was listed in The Washington Post’s 50 Notable Works of Fiction in the 2019 round-up. 

We are thrilled that more readers in the US will be able to discover Elizabeth’s latest rich and vibrant novel!
