Sixteen-year-old Peggy is a well-bred orphan who is coerced into posing as a lady-in-waiting at the palace of King George I. Life is grand, until Peggy starts to suspect that the girl she's impersonating might have been murdered. Unless Peggy can discover the truth, she might be doomed to the same terrible fate.
