Story Summary

When King Arthur's trusted horse is wounded in a joust, a young girl from the bested knight's castle begs leave to talk with the king. Just as Arthur is about to put his friend out of his misery, the girl, the daughter of a healer, asks permission to save him. The girl breaks all codes of conduct, even telling Arthur himself what to do, but saves the king's faithful companion. Knighted Sir Grey Nose, Arthur's most trusted friend is allowed to live out his years in peace, far from fields of battle.
