Pegasus by Danielle Steel

Lovereading view...

Opening in Germany where cousins owned large adjoining estates, we are on the cusp of World War II. Jewish blood is in the family as one cousin married a Jew. Naturally the kids are in danger and a brilliant plan is hatched to get them out. They become circus performers! The Pegasus of the title is a magnificent horse. This is a really unusual subject for Danielle Steel, a big departure into historical fiction which, if you are a Steel fan, you will love.

Pegasus by Danielle Steel

One life-changing war. A love story that would echo across the decades...On the cusp of the Second World War in Europe, Nicolas and Alex are two widowed men raising their children alone. They lead contented, peaceful lives, until a long-buried secret about Nicolas' ancestry threatens his family's safety...To survive, they must flee to America. The only treasures Nicolas and his sons can take are eight purebred horses, two of them dazzling Lipizzaners - gifts from Alex. These magnificent creatures are their ticket to a new life, securing Nicolas a job with the famous Ringling Brothers Circus. There, he and the white stallion, Pegasus, become the centrepiece of the show, and a graceful young high-wire walker soon steals his heart. But as the years of war take their toll, Nicolas struggles to adapt to their new life while Alex and his daughter face escalating danger in Europe. When tragedy strikes on both sides of the ocean, what will become of each family when their happiness rests in the hands of fate? A beautiful story of fate, love and loss, tied together by two families who were never meant to stay apart and the powerful bond that will link them forever, from the incomparable storyteller Danielle Steel.
