When 12-year-old Rose Muddle becomes a maid in a grand house, she is grateful to escape the harsh workhouse environment where she grew up. However, Rose is astonished when her mistress, Miss Templeforth, reveals the real reason behind her employment. Having spent many years guarding a magical amber pendant, Miss Templeforth's health is now failing and she has selected Rose as the new keeper of the stone.
