Waiting on Wednesday: The Stolen One by Suzanne Crowley

"Waiting on" Wednesday was created by Jill of Breaking the Spine, and is a way for bloggers to share the upcoming books that they're longing for. This week I'm waiting on...

The Stolen One

by Suzanne Crowley
Released July 6th, 2009

When her adoptive mother dies, Katherine Bab takes the chance she has been waiting for her whole life: she moves from her country village to London, to uncover the secret of who she really is. Before long, Kat has become a favorite of Queen Elizabeth herself, and rumors are swirling - could fiery-haired Kat be the secret daughter of the Virgin Queen? Kat's got plenty of other things to figure out, as well . . . such as how to choose between her childhood love and two handsome men at court vying for her affection. This smart, sensual novel drips with intrigue, period detail, and drama and will resonate with anyone who has ever longed to find his or her place in the world.

Why I'm waiting:
The time of the Tudors is one of my favorite time periods (after the English Regency), and this is one of those books that I know I will think is wonderful (the last time that happened was with Graceling, and look how that turned out). Isn't the cover nice? I wonder what the pear signifies/references. Can't wait to see!


  1. This sounds cool. Although the cover doesn't really seem to fit the blurb.

  2. When I first saw the cover, I thought for sure it must be a fairytale retelling but Tirzah assured me it was not.

    But still...WANT!

  3. Oh, wow, this looks amazing. I love Tudors and the cover is awesome. To the wishlist it goes!

  4. This looks like an interesting book. I will keep my eye open for it.

  5. This looks like a great book..I just added it to my wish list!

  6. I just finished reading an advance copy of this and it is REALLY good! I definitley recommend reading it when it's published.
