Born to penniless parents, Diamond wasn’t always a star. Discovering an extraordinary gift for acrobatics, Diamond uses her talent to earn a few pennies, but brings shame on her family. When a mysterious, cruel-eyed stranger spots her performing, Diamond is sold – and is taken to become an acrobat at Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus.
The crowds adore Diamond, but life behind the velvet curtains is far from glamorous. When life at the circus becomes too dangerous to bear any longer, what will the future hold for Diamond?
