Princess Rosalynn of Bracken has been left in the care of loyal Sir Reynald while her father, the king, is away. When Sir Reynald learns of an impending attack from Folger, a neighboring country much larger than Bracken and connected to it only by a suspension bridge he devises a plan to save the princess and hopefully save Bracken as well.
When enemy soldiers chase the fleeing princess and soldier, Herron is wounded and he must leave Rosalynn in the middle of the forest to lead the soldiers away. Rosalynn is left to begin her journey through perilous, enemy-filled territory - her life in danger with every step. In the process, a wise woman will help and guide her to greater understanding of forgiveness, herself, and others. Will Herron escape? Can they bring down the suspension bridge in time to save their country?
