Thirteen-year-old Lady Grace Cavendish, maid of honor to Queen Elizabeth I, describes in her diary how she tries to discover who stole a magical ruby belonging to the visiting princess of Sharakand.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
The Fifteenth Day of January,
in the Year of Our Lord 1570

The Queen's Presence Chamber -
late morning

I am sitting with the other Maids of Honour, awaiting the Queen. We are huddled as close to the roaring fire as we can get without scorching our skirts. I must be especially careful for Mrs. Champernowne, the Mistress of the Maids, has warned that there is not an endless supply of kirtles for me. (The last one only had a little tear from my recent entanglement with a holly bush and I did not mean to put my foot through the hole!)

Publisher Description:
There's a new arrival—a mysterious and exotic young princess—at Court and Lady Grace can't believe how many rumours there are about her already. The exiled Banoo Yasmine from Sharakand is a beautiful girl with a pet panther and, everyone believes, magical powers. Yasmine also possesses the renowned Heart of Kings Ruby, a huge stone that she wears around her neck to balls and feasts, that legend says has the power to make kings. When the famed jewel goes missing, the finger is pointed at Grace's dear friend Ellie the laundry maid. Grace must prove her friend's innocence, find the true thief, and restore the stone to its rightful owner.

All miscreants and ill-thinkers, keep out!
