Twelve novels and too-many-to-count short stories, drabbles, and what-ifs, later... and it comes to this? We can only hope.
She’s the most famous person the world has ever known. The only person the public talks about. The only person the public thinks about. They fall to their knees in front of her, if they’re allowed that close. They want to meet her, to know her, to have a part of her. They call her Isabel, and she has wings.
Sold by a disreputable carnival to the quickest bidder, Isabel finds herself at the Brooks Spectacular Circus and Showcase of Magnificent Marvels. This little-known American circus makes her their crown jewel, but all she’s concerned about is making the circus her home.
It should have been perfect, but she’s the most famous person the world has ever known. The cost to protect her, the cost to keep her, is higher than anyone expected. And for Isabel, the cost to be herself may be almost impossible to pay.
