​1866. In a coastal village in southern England, our main character picks violets for a living. Set apart by her community because of the birthmarks that speckle her skin, her world is her beloved brother and devotion to the sea.

But when a captivating circus arrives in the village, she is kidnapped. Her father has sold her, promising the Ringleader his very own leopard girl. It is the greatest betrayal of her life, but as her fame grows, and she finds friendship with the other performers and the Ringleader’s gentle brother, she begins to wonder if joining the show is the best thing that has ever happened to her.

In London, newspapers describe her as the eighth wonder of the world. Figurines are cast in her image, and crowds rush to watch her soar through the air. But who gets to tell her story? What happens when her fame threatens to eclipse that of the showman who bought her? And as she falls in love, can he detach himself from his past and the terrible secret that binds him to his brother?

Moving from the pleasure gardens of Victorian London to the battle-scarred plains of the Crimea, this novel is an astonishing story about power and ownership, fame and the threat of invisibility.

​A well-researched novel woven with spellbinding storytelling, this immersive tale takes the reader beyond the macabre horror of the circus of ‘freaks’ and into the thrillingly imagined world of the weird and the wonderful.
