Trapped in the Wars of the Roses, one woman finds herself sister to the queen…and traitor to the crown “The Wars of the Roses come spectacularly to life in Susan Higginbotham’s compelling new novel about Kate Woodville, sister to Queen Elizabeth of England. A sweeping tale of danger, treachery, and love, The Stolen Crown is impossible to put down!” —Michelle Moran, bestselling author of Cleopatra’s Daughter “A fascinating and compelling look at a tumultuous era. Susan Higginbotham writes the perfect blend of historical fact and fiction.” —Elizabeth Kerri Mahon, creator of the Scandalous Women blog Katherine Woodville’s sister never gave her a choice. A happy girl of modest means, Kate hardly expected to become a maker of kings. But when her sister impulsively marries King Edward IV in secret, Katherine’s life is no longer hers to control… “A new King with a secret Queen; love and tears, loyalty and turmoil. With a single stroke, Susan Higginbotham transports her readers into a vividly portrayed past, where the turbulent lives of her characters become very real. Probably her best novel yet!” —Helen Hollick, author of the Pendragon’s Banner trilogy “A tale of love, palace intrigue, and betrayal…Susan Higginbotham draws the reader under her spell, her characters vivid and real: their voices, their loves, their losses. She brings the dead to life.” —Christy English, author of The Queen’s Pawn
