Anne Wheeler is a misunderstood, colored woman who was a slave up until she was 20 years old. She's reunited with her brother WD when slavery is abolished, and he convinces her to do a trapeze act with him in P.T. Barnum's Circus. But when she meets a questionable, supposedly no-good man named Phillip Carlyle, things in her life take a turn. In this story, Anne battles through discrimination, assault, and heart ache. When you're reading this story I can promise you one thing. Feels. 

This story starts at the beginning of 'The Greatest Showman.' I have no rights to the movie or the characters. Fic rated: PG-13 for some adult themes and mild language.

Warning: There are adult themes in this story. There will be notices in a chapter that contains them before and after they happen. All of these themes (examples: self-harm, assault) are mildly used, and they all have negative outcomes. I'm not adding  these things to the story to promote them. I'm just simply adding them to make the romantic plot more interesting. 

If you are struggling with a mental illness, or have been assaulted, do not hesitate to get help. You are important. And I love you. If you need help, talk to someone you trust, seek therapy or (in extreme cases) call 1-800-273-8255. I'm always open to talk to if someone needs it. 💕
