Historical Fiction… Go…

Even though I feel like it’s overhyped, I honestly loved The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Salt to the Sea and Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys are both good too.
War and Peace and Middlemarch are both “historical” fiction, being written more than a generation after the events they detail. An underrated “modernist” historical novel is Elizabeth Bowen’s The Heat of the Day (set during the London blitz).
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Tattooist Of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, Circe by Madeline Miller, Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, Next Year In Havana by Chanel Cleeton ??
As Bright As Heaven
Fever 1793, The Orphan Train, Before We Were Yours
Pretty much anything by Philippa Gregory. The Hangmans Daughter series is amazing as well.
New York or Paris by Edward Rutherford! Both capture the cities perfectly and the stories are amazing! Georgiana the Duchess of Devonshire is another great read! It’s not fiction but her life feels like a dramatic romance book!
Nefertiti by Michelle Moran or The heretic queen or Cleopatra’s Daughter also by her
Hilary Mantel and C.J. Sansom( The Mathew Shardlake series).
The Kingdom of Durundal. https://www.amazon.com/author/seturner
Where clans and courts collide.
