About this item
Diamond wasn’t always a star. Born to penniless parents who longed for a son, she was a dainty, delicate daughter–and a bitter disappointment. Discovering she has an extraordinary natural gift for acrobatics, Diamond tries to use her talent to earn a few pennies. A mysterious stranger spots her performing on the street, and makes a deal with her father.
Diamond is sold and is taken to become an acrobat at Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus. Her master is wicked and greedy. But there are true friends to be found at the circus, including the glorious Emerald Star, Tanglefield’s brand-new ringmaster, and Diamond’s heroine.
The crowds adore her, but when life at the circus becomes too dangerous to bear any longer, what will the future hold for Diamond? And will her beloved Emerald be a part of it?
