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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

  • “Impossible to put down.”

    Seventeen

  • “Historical-fiction fans will find Kat a strong, engaging heroine and her story a compelling one.”

    Booklist

  • “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

  • An ALA Best Book for Young Adults
  • Indie Next List

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/19/2014

    " The setting is Elizabethan England and the main character is a 16 year old girl that is searching to find out who she is. This was an engrossing historical fiction novel with a very determined main character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lady Knight | 2/17/2014

    " I instantly fell in love with the cover, too bad I didn't fall in love with the story. The Tudor England setting might be tried and true but it felt a little worn here. Telling the legendary (urban legend that is) story of Katherine Parr's (Henry VIII's last wife -- and the only one to out live him) long lost daughter, "The Stolen One" chronicles Kat's life first as a country girl who shows great talent for embroidery and then as a lady of Elizabeth I's court. She deals with all of the typical teenage trials with a dash of court intrigue for good measure. While I loved the idea of the plot, I never really like Kat, Anna, Grace or any of the others, and the development was slow and trying. Not one I will be recommending any time soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/6/2014

    " Interesting exploration of what may have happened to Katherine Parr's child with Thomas Seymour and how she may have grown up to be accepted at Elizabeth's court. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri Reese | 2/5/2014

    " It was a quick light read and it was interesting to go back to the days of London in the time after Henry the VIII. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/25/2014

    " It was much better than I thought it was going to be. It was interesting and a good read, the ending just upset me a little bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Djenii | 1/19/2014

    " Beautiful story-telling !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/12/2014

    " For books that have come out lately about this time period this one is much cleaner. The main character was at times difficult to like, but I thought it taught some good lessons, and the ending was worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 12/30/2013

    " The story line was interesting but I found it too much work to keep track of all the names and encounters between the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ry | 12/5/2013

    " I couldn't really get into the story all that much and as such I don't think I'll do much of a review. Some of the facts mentioned in the story about the characters are kind of confusing... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 9/25/2013

    " This was an interesting story. I liked it alright. I felt depressed after I read it. Hmmm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikii | 7/9/2013

    " It wasn't a bad book at all. Easy reading & the history kept within the writing is interesting & I love how the author played with the what-if. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanna | 2/23/2013

    " It was okay. The story just went in one complete circle though. She ended exactly where she started. My favorite character was Bartolome! (I'm not sure how to spell his name and I don;t have a copy of the book anymore, sorry Bartolome!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Em | 1/10/2013

    " this book was okay, but the main character bugged me and i couldn't get past that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca Campbell | 9/10/2012

    " Had a hard time getting on board with the main character because I didn't identify with her actions in the beginning of the book. The book does pick up later on though I really never clicked with the main character. "

    " This was a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/21/2011

    " The first two thirds of this book were really great, but the last third really got into the English lineage, which is very confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanna | 2/26/2011

    " It was okay. The story just went in one complete circle though. She ended exactly where she started. My favorite character was Bartolome! (I'm not sure how to spell his name and I don;t have a copy of the book anymore, sorry Bartolome!) "

    " I highly enjoyed this book! Though it was pretty obvious who Kat's parents were, I still found myself intrigued by all the clues she found. I loved seeing a softer side to Queen Elizabeth and really liked her and Kat's friendship.

    I wish we could have gotten more of Anna, though! "
