Trapped in the Wars of the Roses, one woman finds herself sister to the queen . . . and traitor to the crown.

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 . . .

"[Higginbotham] hits another historical high note in her latest fictional foray into the British monarchy. . . . This fictional prelude to the Tudor era will appeal to fans of Philippa Gregory's historicals." ---Booklist

"The Stolen Crown impossible to put down!" ---Michelle Moran, author of Cleopatra's Daughter

"Susan Higginbotham transports her [fans] 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

"Actors and playwrights John Lee and Alison Larkin provide a lively performance and effectively narrate these reminiscences of Kate and her husband, full of historical facts among the deceptions, betrayal, romance, and throngs of characters." --- Library Journal Audio Review

"Both narrators capture Katherine's gentle yet unyielding resolve to protect her family amid shifting political alliances, and Henry's naïve loyalty to the power-hungry Richard as he ultimately strives for the throne." ---AudioFile
