The year is 1483, and a boy makes a friend: a kitchen girl in his castle. But when his father, Edward IV, suddenly passes away and the boy becomes King of England, young Beth becomes part of one of the darkest and most mysterious episodes in English history. As the boy's uncle, Richard of Gloucester, sets his sights on the throne, will Beth be able to do more than be a spectator to the fate of Edward and his younger brother, the Princes in the Tower? Historical figures and fictional characters collide in this fast-paced, theatrical drama.
