Bought a couple new historical fictions books the other day that I just couldn't pass up.

"Candle in the Darkness" by Lynn Austin. Set back during the civil war era.

"The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen" by Syrie James. It is classified as historical fiction based on rumors that Jane Austen kept a journal and what if she did.

I've always enjoyed historical fiction - and was delighted when I discovered fantasy historical fiction. I eagerly await each of Diana Gabaldon's new books. But I still like the conventional novels too. I like the genre so much so that I write it as well. Recent history is my favourite time period so my first novel is set in the 1940s and 50s in rural Ireland. It was a very different time and place to the present day so, even though it is recent history, it doesn't feel that recent.

DianneAscroft;

I read Historical Fiction sometimes for a diversion. I'm more into the real thing. When I do read it I rather like Pressfield, or Turtledove.

Doesn't Turtledove do alot of "alternative" history novels?

I have found a new author,her name is Monica MaCarty.She has three books Highlander Untamed Highlander Unmasked and Highlander Unchained. She uses some real facts in her storys but will make the have a happy ending. In the back of the books she has the real facts about the characters.
