Betrayal is the second in the Lady Grace Mysteries, a children's mystery series. A narrow audience is probably girls in grades 4-8, although an independent reader of any age or gender could enjoy it.
Lady Grace is the youngest member of the Court of Honor to Queen Elizabeth I. The books of the series are her daybook entries.
In this story, Lady Grace, with the help of court tumbler, Masou, saves the honor of Lady Sarah when Grace thinks Sir Francis Drake has abducted her.
Lady Grace is a spirited girl who gets into some situations not really becoming of a lady of the court. This results in many humorous anecdotes.
