Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

Based on the Grimm fairy tale of Rapunzel, Lady Saren is restrained in a tower for seven years because she refused to marry a man she despises. Dashti, her maid, and the Lady Saren, her mistress, prepare for a very long and dark imprisonment. Dashti struggles to keep them fed and comfortable as food supplies dwindle. Two of Lady Saren's suitors—one welcome, and the other decidedly less so—bring hope as well as the possiblity of great danger. Dashti makes the desperate choices of a girl whose life is worth more than she knows. Book of a Thousand Days is a unique retelling filled with adventure and romance, drama and disguise.
