I found this good-condition hardcover at a local thrift shop, and found the ravens-at-the-tower idea appealing. (I've visited the Tower of London and seen the resident ravens - very cool!)

The story centers on a boy whose father tends the ravens - and guards the prisoners - at the Tower. Young Forrest is teaching his favorite raven tricks, and looks forward to being in charge of them when he grows up - but then he meets a young girl, the daughter of Scottish rebels, and finds that he can't bear to think of her being executed. With the aid of another friend, a young chimney sweep who's desperate to escape from his cruel master, Forrest makes a risky choice...
