Synopsis

The Magic Hand of Chance A Tales of Everyday Magic Novel by Ethan Lipton, Lynn Lauber

The Magic Hand of Chance takes readers into a world like no other - the circus! This charming and inspiring story focuses on the character Voronin in his pursuit to become the greatest magician in the world. Following a colourful cast of characters in a traveling Russian circus - the fire-eater, the juggler, the trapeze artist, the acrobats, the contortionist and the clowns - we see hopes dashed, dreams realised, lies told and love grown. Through a series of twists and turns, we watch as Voronin hones his craft while performing around the world. Through his journey, we learn the importance of believing in yourself and your dreams even in the face of negativity. We see that against all odds, it is possible to become who you really want to be.
