For Juliet, a gamekeeper's daughter serving as lady-in-waiting to her best friend, Lady Marguerite, life at court is exciting, but it's also lonely. Juliet misses her family back home in Rosebrier, and feels left out as Marguerite forges a new friendship with snooty Lady Enid Buckler. But when Juliet learns that Enid's father is being held captive by and evil nobleman who has unjustly accused him of treason, she quickly agrees to help. Somehow Enid must get in touch with her parents. But how can she, when their enemy has locked them away in a guarded stronghold? It is Juliet who comes up with the daring plan to break into their prison - and Juliet who risks her own life to right a terrible wrong, and in the process finds friendship where she least expects it.
