I need some new historical romance that isn’t the same old!I need some new historical romance that isn’t the same old!!! Stephanie #recommend #history #romance
Possession, by A S Byatt
Sandra Dallas writes great historical fiction about women and their relationships. Something different….although not fully romances.
The Golem and the Jinni
Not quite a historical romance, but historical fiction (with some romance in it): The First Blast of the Trumpet by Marie MacPherson …?
The Secret Wife by Gill Paul is a griping love story spanning from the Russian revolution to the modern day. It is well written and a lovely story
Trinity, Leon Uris
The Sidewalk Artist
Anything by Adriana Trigiani
Tisha – a young teacher goes to Alaska to work. Awesome story!
The Bronze Horseman
A Vision of Light by Judith Merkle Riley
For Such a Time by Kate Breslin or even her book, Not by Sight.
It’s very….eclectic. This gentleman takes a walk one day and ends up in an odd situation that turns out to be a significant point in history. Kind of like Forrest Gump, but international.
Wideacre by Philippa Gregory. I think it’s one of her best. The main character is dark and ruthless to get what she wants. And what she wants is to be mistress of her family home. But she is the daughter and her brother is to inherit the beloved estate. Let’s just say she stops at nothing to get what she wants.
I second The Bronze Horseman and nominate The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
By the way, each of these is the first book in a series. I gave each of them 5 Stars, but I did not really care for the sequels.
In the Land of the Long White Cloud
Lauren Willig’s Pink Carnation books. Set during and just after the French Revolution. They move back and forth from present day to the historical period.
I’ve read more historical romances that I care to admit. If you tell me who some of your favorite authors are I can probably recommend something.
Into the Wilderness
The Girl Who Wrote in Silk
Yes I’m reading all them right now and they are so good.
Definitely the bronze horseman series
Mercer Girls…very good!!! I’m reading Voyager now.
Possession by AS Byatt.
Anything by Tracy Chevalier
I am enjoying books by Beatriz Williams. Great reads.
