Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants
by Sara Gruen

The story alternates between the thoughts of a 93-year old man in a nursing home and his story of being a veterinarian with the circus in Depression-era America. At first I thought I wasn't going to get into this book at all because the dirty, gritty life of the circus and the depressing life of a nursing home aren't exactly pick-me-up topics. But then I couldn't stop reading. Ultimately, it's a love story.
