Juliet and Marguerite are best friends. They are almost like sisters. There is a big difference though. Marguerite is the daughter of the Lord of the Manor. Someday she will be the Lady of RoseBriar. Juliet is a commoner. Her father is a freeman who works for Marguerite's father. When word arrives that Marguerite is to leave the manor, Juliet is happy for her friend but sad for herself. She understands that this time would have to come sooner or later, but she doesn't want her friend to leave. To make her day even worse, her young brother Alban has accidentally let the prize falcon out of his shed and Juliet has to go find it to bring it back. After all, in Middle Ages England, a person responsible for the loss of a valuable falcon can be put to death.
