Julia Pallister lived through the 1600's while the British monarchy had temporarily lost power to Cromwell's puritanical reforms. Julia loves the pearls on the elegant dress that her grandmother, Katheryn, received from Queen Elizabeth -- the only opulence that went undiscovered by ransacking roundheads determined to wipe out the frills and waste of nobility. We follow Julia through her crush on her childhood friend to her eventual marriage to her neighbor and enemy Adam.
