1 Smith, Mary-Ann Tirone Masters of Illusion A Novel of the Connecticut Circus Fire
Grand Central Publishing 1994 0446518069 / 9780446518062 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
The intrusion of the past into the lives of Charlie and Margie O'Neill is revealed in a deceptively simple story with its roots in the historical 1944 Barnum & Bailey circus tent fire, in Hartford, Connecticut, which killed more than 150 people and injured over a thousand women and children. Ten-year-old Charlie, who had a ticket to the circus, grows up to become a fire fighter, determined to discover who set the fire and why. He marries Margie Potter, the fire's youngest survivor, who has no memories of the event that killed her mother and left her back badly scarred. Despite a somewhat predictable plot, this is a book with quiet appeal. Likable characters and good psychological insights make this fourth novel by the author of The Port of Missing Men (LJ 4/15/89) an appropriate choice for larger fiction collections.; 0.9 x 9.1 x 6.1 Inches; 224 pages 
Price: 9.00 USD
