The Museum of Extraordinary Things - Alice Hoffman

Product Description(
Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the sinister impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a Coney Island freak show that thrills the masses. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father’s “museum,” alongside performers like the Wolfman and the Butterfly Girl. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man taking pictures of moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River.

The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his community and his job as a tailor’s apprentice.

MY THOUGHTS:  This is my book clubs choice for August.  It's also a new author for me.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  The author has woven history into her book.  The characters are so real and the area they live in..I felt I was right there with them.  This book is historical, romance, and mystery all combined that comes together with a bang.  If your looking for this kind of book, I highly recommend this one.  I give this book a rating of 5......

This book is also for the Full House Reading Challenge.
