Girl in a Cage
Jane Yolen & Robert J. Harris
Jane Yolen, Author
"But I bring news that is not so happy. I have fallen afoul of the English King again, and this time the danger we have all feared upon us is last." This is said by Marjorie's father, Robert, as he returns from a journey. He speaks to his wife and this is a flashback as Marjorie thinks of the day this happens but it's also a foreshadowing of what awful things were to happen ahead.
"Now I could forget all the fears- and the blood. Now I could forget my torn skirt." She says this after she is rescued by Isabel of Buchan from her cage. It's a very important quote because it speaks of the pain and hardship being of the past.
