In March 1306, Robert Bruce is crowned King of Scotland and begins to organize a movement for independence from British rule. The king of England discovers the rebellion and captures Roberts’s only child-eleven-year-old Marjorie-and imprisons her in a cage that hangs in the public square of the town of Lanercost. Marjorie narrates the harrowing story of her twenty days in captivity. Afterword.
