Carrie Lynn Lyons and Mundania Press
invite you to run away with Cavanaugh's Carnival.
Solomon and Leon Cavanaugh, two starring attractions of a carnival oddities show, interrupt a nefarious plot to
wipe out the Weston family. Willing to do anything within or outside the law to protect the tiny survivor who climbs from
the bullet riddled car, her unsusual rescuers hide Jaime Weston in the closed world of the carny as Leon's niece,
Jacey Travis. But, will all their precautions be enough or will Jaime's survival, and theirs, depend on her own unusual gifts?
