The new book is the story of Francia Abbot Maccomb and her daughter, Capri, who inherited a carnival at the death of Francia's brother.

The troubles they encountered at the hands of the manager, a shady character who hoped by discouraging the pair to get control of the traveling band, their efforts to clean up gambling tents and replace them with legitimate entertainment is only part of the story.

The characterization of circus performers, mechanics and roustabouts is well done and the romantic interlude that appeals to the teen ager reader is gracefully and tactfully accomplished. Mrs. Butters seems to have a real knowledge of carnival jargon, troupers and practices and even explains some of the tricks of the trade. If you've always wanted to know how a woman is sawed in half, you can find the answer in "Carnival Gypsy".
