The Ravenmaster's Secret: Escape From the Tower of London by Elvira Woodruff.
Scholastic Press: NY, 2003.

Forest Harper assists his father in tending the ravens and guarding prisoners at the Tower of London. He is excited about the capture of three Scottish rebels until he learns that the prisoner in their care is a young girl. The girl, Maddy, wins his friendship, and he is appalled to learn that she is to be beheaded. His choice is to either watch her be executed though he believes she is innocent or commit treason by helping her escape.

Though the plot is somewhat predictable, the details of the story and characters are more complex and enjoyable. A rare historical adventure with courage, justice, and friendship at its core.
