The Stolen One

The Stolen One
by Suzanne Crowley

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?

Grade: A

It is kind of hard to describe how much I loved this book. I didn't really know what to expect from it, and I was not disappointed. It was pretty amazing. I loved Kat's character. And I really loved Christian. I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and this was just the kind I love the most, since it was during Elizabeth's ruling time. It was mysterious, and kept me guessing who Kat's mother was. I really had no idea until the end. I didn't dislike any part of this book, aside from the way Kat treated Christian, and the end, only because I didn't want the story to be over! When this book hits bookshelves, you should pick it up, especially if you enjoy historical fiction!
