Carnival Farm

Lisa Jacob

When a local veterinarian decides to take over a traveling carnival’s petting zoo, she doesn’t realize the insanity behind the scenes.

Seagn Conway is tired of her veterinary practice — the same entitled pet parents, the same dogs and cats, maybe the occasional lizard or snake, now bore her to pieces.

When a traveling carnival with a farm animal petting zoo comes to town, she discovers all the animals are depressed, malnourished, and neglected.

Seagn knows she can do a better job of taking care of them than anyone else there, so she purchases the animals, their cages, and their transportation with the purpose of following the carnival around, presenting the animals in their natural habitat.

Was it the right decision, she wonders, to give up everything she had for this ragtag collection of failing farm animals?

    “Author Lisa Jacob does a beautiful job describing carnival life in post-Pandemic New England. The characters feel authentic and the scenes of daily carnival life seem spot-on.”

  4. J Dark

    “… an intricately detailed view of the inner workings of a small struggling carnival and has a quirky cast of good and bad characters. The detail and the people all have their own quirks and personalities, with the life in the carnival itself very detailed and realistic.”

    J Dark, author of Best Intentions and Sometimes After Dark
