Roll up, Hetty Feather fans. Diamond’s touching tale of the circus, secrets and surprises is a sparkling gem. Delicate, dainty Diamond is a remarkable acrobat. But her horrid parents couldn’t care less. When her father sells her to a cruel-eyed stranger, Diamond is forced to perform for a living at Tanglefield’s Travelling Circus. The crowds adore Diamond, but life behind the velvet curtains is far from glamorous. Her wicked master forces Diamond to do ever more dangerous tricks. Who will save Diamond? Enter the glorious Emerald Star: Tanglefield’s new ringmaster and Diamond’s heroine…
