I finished the book Water for Elephants. Jacob the main character in the story falls for someone else's wife. Marlena is in the act with the liberty horses, her husband August is the Equestrian Director of the show and is an insane person. He nearly kills both Jacob and Marlena cause he thinks Marlena is cheating in him but they aren't. Later on in the book a stampede happens killing August, Marlena and Jacob leave taking Rosie the elephant, Marlena's 11 liberty horses and the chimp Bobo. They get married and have 5 children.
