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.

Our customer reviews

Katherine Bab takes her one chance to get out of her country village to go to London when her adoptive mother passes away. She wants, no, needs, to find out who she really is. Soon, Kat becomes a favorite of Queen Elizabeth herself. Rumors are everywhere, since they have matching hair - could she be the Virgin Queen\'s secret daughter? She stitches for hours, creating a masterpiece of a dress for the Queen. Two men at court, Rafael and Nicholas, are trying to win her heart, but Kat can\'t help but think of Christian, her childhood best friend, and the man at her village that wants to marry her. Who will she choose? And will she find out who her mother is? I was so impressed by this novel. I loved all of the characters. It was mysterious, and it made me want to find out who Kat\'s mother was. I was just as curious as she was! I\'m a big fan of historical fiction, especially during the time of Elizabeth as Queen. And here is another one that I really enjoyed. There was nothing I was disappointed in during the novel, except a little at the end, only because I didn\'t want the story to end! When THE STOLEN ONE hits bookshelves, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction. Or read it if it just sounds interesting!show more
