VALTHEA: I READ PEOPLE: The Daughters, Book I
Romanian gymnast, Valthea Sarosi is a world-class athlete who sees visions of people’s past. The teen’s determination to find her birth parents, headline a circus, and experience true love, lead her to perform at festivals throughout her country with a Gypsy troupe, and Eastern Europe with a progressive, single-ring circus.
Valthea and Sorin Dobra, the Gypsy troupe’s fire-juggler with med-school ambition, fall in love. Childhood abandonment bonds the fair-haired Sorin, adopted by the Gypsies, and Valthea, adopted by a kind, elderly woman. In her rise to stardom, naturally empathetic Valthea encounters jealousy, obsession, and bullying. But her greatest challenge comes when her loved-ones are threatened. Will Valthea access her paranormal prowess or be forced to rely solely on heart and wit?
