 The Traveling Man (Traveling, #1)
Author: Jane Harvey – Berrick
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance


I was ordinary. Nice. He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice. Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t. Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path. Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life. As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough.

My Review 
I've read another book by Jane Harvey-Berrick, Lifers, and ADORED IT! Saying that, I had high expectations for Traveling Man. I was not let down. NOT AT ALL. This is an engaging story of first love and first heartbreak. 
Kestrel 'Kes' Donohue is a circus prodigy. Raised from a young age to entertain, born to be center stage. Both mesmerizing and enthralling. One cannot help be ensared by his auora. 
Amiee Anderson is an adventurer at heart. Raised by controling parents, she longs for a life she can only read about in books. 
Two weeks a year.
Two souls from two different worlds.
True love.

The way Jane developed the characters was masterful. 
How Kes & Amiee grew from pre-teen to teen to adult felt authentic. 
Their angst spot on.

I got all of the feels from this book! It took my heart and made it beat faster. It had highs and lows and so many tender moments that were just perfect. I teared up, which does not happen often. But most of all it held my attention. From beginning to end. I could not put it down. In fact, I had no idea I had reached the end.....I was so engrossed into the story. I went to turn the page.....and damn, 

Going into Traveling Man I knew it was book 1 of 2. I was expecting a cliffhanger, and there was one. Not a terrible one, but right at the point of the story where you don't want to stop. I literally kept trying to see if I had missed any pages. I needed to turn that page so badly. Alas, there was nothing but knowing I would wait with bated breathe for the next book.
A truely poignet coming of age story.

I lived in London for over 10 years and have a love affair with New York. It's only since I have moved to the countryside, that the words have really begun to flow. I live in a small village by the ocean and walk my little dog, Pip, every day. It’s on those beachside walks that I have all my best ideas. Writing has become a way of life – and one that I love to share.
