The one place Rose finds refuge is in her grandmother's Tudor-style greenhouse. But one night, she sees a strange light glowing from within it. She climbs a ladder to investigate... and finds herself transported back four hundred years to Hatfield Palace, where she becomes servant and confidante of the banished princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Henry VIII.
