AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Small, but perfectly formed. Augustus is not a dwarf. He is perfectly proportioned, just on a smaller scale than other people. Abandoned by his mother at the circus, he is taken on by Rosa, a fiery and supremely pragmatic girl who sees great opportunity in the power of Augustus's voice. For when the little boy opens his mouth and sings, everyone's most personal and cherished memories are evoked, reducing even the most belligerent to tears ...' (Trove record)
