When a ragtag circus shows up in the town of Buchanan, Kansas, fourteen-year-old Randy Carmichael faces a deep mystery. Why is his alcoholic mother so troubled by the troupe s arrival? What does Circus Olympus mean to her past and to Randy s future? Voices summon him, a godlike figure appears in his dreams, and supernatural adversaries lay in wait for him as he embarks on a dangerous quest that will take him beyond mortal reality. Juggler in the Wind has already been recognized for strong writing and a haunting story. It's the fascinating first novel in The Wand Bearer Trilogy by award-winning authors Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin.
