Long before she becomes Queen of England, Princess Victoria rides out in an open coach with her mother. Around her neck the child proudly wears her new silk scarf--long, white, and embroidered with her initial. But the scarf will not belong to the young princess for long. A mischievous breeze will tug at the scarf, uncoil it from the little girl's neck, and lift it into the air. The young princess will grow up, become queen, and rule her people for many years before she will see her scarf again.
And what of the scarf? How long will it float on the breeze and find a succession of owners before time--and chance--bring it back to its rightful owner at last?
