Publisher Comments:

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.


Set during the lush Elizabethan period, this smart, sensual novel drips with intrigue, period detail, and drama, as it follows a girl from the English countryside who travels to London to uncover the secret of who she really is.

Katy K, May 10, 2010 (view all comments by Katy K)
The Stolen One is the story of Katherine "Kat" Bab. The identity of her own parents a mystery, Kat was raised by Grace Bab in a quiet country village. Kat, however, is sure that she's destined for greater things, and is determined to resolve the mystery of her parentage.

When Grace dies, Kat takes the opportunity to strike out for London, along with her sister Anna. Once there, Kat has the good fortune to be included in Queen Elizabeth II's court, continuing to ply her embroidery needle while investigating both the truth of her origins and the nature of true love.

Crowley does a great job of immersing the reader in the history of the time, and making Elizabethan England accessible and intriguing. This is truly an engaging and delightful read.
