In London in 1735, eleven-year-old Forrest Harper is living with his family at the Tower of London where he helps his father tend the ravens and guard the prisoners. Still, life is lonely. When vicious Scottish Rebels are captured, Forrest is delighted, even though the Harpers are only given custody of Maddy, a Scottish Rebel's daughter. Soon a friendship grows between them. But when she is slated for execution, Forrest is faced with a horrifying choice: to commit treason and help her escape or obey the law and allow his innocent friend to be executed.
The richly expressive prose of Kenneth Grahame continues to delight. . . full of warm colors and busy activities."--Language Arts
