Description

No one wanted you. But I did.

Kat's true identity is a secret, even from her. All she has ever known are Grace and Anna and their small village. Kat wants more—more than hours spent embroidering finery for wealthy ladies and more than Christian, the gentle young farmer courting her.

But there are wolves outside, Grace warns. Waiting, with their eyes glowing in the dark . . . and Grace has given Kat safety and a home when no one else would.

Then a stranger appears in their cottage, bringing the mystery of Kat's birth with her. In one night, Kat's destiny finds her: She will leave. She will journey to London, and her skill with the needle will attract the notice of the magnificent Queen Elizabeth—and of the wolves of the court. She will discover what Grace would never tell her.

Everything will unravel.



Praise For The Stolen One

“[A] tantalizing mystery…This novel offers romance readers (or fans of The Tudors) many sumptuous costumes, a parade of ‘distinguished-looking’ fellows, and something of historical substance as well.”
-The Horn Book

“Intrigue, romance, and period details abound in this riveting story of Tudor England.”
-School Library Journal

“Suzanne Crowley’s prose entranced me—it was as delicate and magical as Katherine’s needlework—transporting me to a world rich with mystery and romance.”
-Mary Pearson, author of The Adoration of Jenna Fox
