Blog Tour: The Stolen Crown by Carol McGrath

Genre: Historical fiction
Publisher: Headline Accent
Pub date: 18 May 2023

I’m very excited to be taking part in the blog tour of Carol McGrath’s The Stolen Crown which publishes tomorrow (18th May 2023).

Having read The Stone Rose: The Rose Trilogy and The Damask Rose I cannot wait to read the new release.

I am missing the Silken Rose from the Rose Trilogy but enjoyed the others so much I’ll certainly be reading it and of course the newest release, The Stolen Crown.

The Stolen Crown is available for preorder in ebook, paperback and audio book, perfect for the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend. I will be digging in as soon as my copy arrives!

When Princess Matilda is eighteen years old, tragedy strikes the royal family, and she becomes the only child of the king of England – the de facto heir to the throne. As her dying father persuades the barons to pledge allegiance to her, Matilda returns to England – but the lords and clergy do not like an independent woman. And Matilda is nothing if not headstrong . . .

When the old king dies, the country is plunged into instant chaos. So begins a fierce battle between cousins that will go down in history as a time called ‘The Anarchy’. And Matilda must race across England, evading capture until she can demand the crown . . .

Carol McGrath is the author of the acclaimed She-Wolves Trilogy, which began with the hugely successful The Silken Rose and continues with the brand new The Damask Rose. Born in Northern Ireland, she fell in love with historical fiction at a young age, when exploring local castles, such as Carrickfergus, and nearby archeological digs- and discovering some ancient bones herself. While completing a degree in History, she became fascinated by the strong women who were silenced in record. Her first novel, The Handfasted Wife, was shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association Awards, and Mistress Cromwell was widely praised as a timely feminist retelling of Tudor court life. Her novels are known for their intricacy, depth of research and powerful stories.
