In 1483, after their father, King Edward IV's death, the princes Edward and Richard of England were locked up in the Tower of London by their uncle, Richard Duke of Gloucester, who was eager to precede them to the throne. Soon after their imprisonment, the princes vanished and, to this day, the mystery of their disappearance remains unsolved. While many believed that their uncle had them killed, the possibility remains that they got away. In this dramatic adventure written entirely in secret letters, Elaine Clayton imagines what might have happened...perhaps the daughter of a tower guard helped them escape! With lush oil paintings that dramatically convey the mood of 15th century England, this entertaining and dynamic picture book reveals one of the most intriguing secrets in the history of England's monarchy. It's spunky heroine and her daring rescue of the endangered princes will have readers cheering and may even spark an interest in history.
