Entwined is a novel by author Heather Dixon. The story follows the main character, Azalea, as she tries to put the pieces of her life back together after losing her mother. Azalea is the oldest of 12 girls, so she promises her mother on her deathbed that she will take care of her sisters. As the oldest, Azalea is also in line to become queen.

When Azalea discovers that the palace they live in is magic, she also learns there are secret passageways and rooms in the palace. Azalea stumbles onto a brick marked with the initials of the King that is rumored to have "magicked" the palace. She rubs her late mother's silver-threaded handkerchief on the initials and discovers a secret passageway to a silver forest. Since the girls are forbidden from dancing, which is their favorite pastime, while in mourning for their mother, they sneak away on a nightly basis to dance in the pavilion in the silver forest.

Keeper, who is the man that runs the pavilion and the silver forest, possesses magic of his own. He tells the girls they can come and dance their hearts out at the pavilion whenever they wish. Eventually, however, Keeper reveals to Azalea that he is the former King who is responsible for "magicking" the palace. The catch is that he wants to collect on the payment for allowing the girls to dance in the pavilion. The payment requires the girls to find the magic item in the palace and break it so that Keeper can be set free.

In the meantime, the girls are learning how to make it through life without a mother, and a father who is emotionally absent. As the novel unfolds, the girls learn valuable lessons in life from the dances they learn. The relationship with their father also develops into a more loving and normal relationship. In the midst of the year of mourning, the three oldest girls—Azalea, Bramble and Clover—also fall in love and get engaged to be married.
