Historical Fiction

I've been formulating some thoughts, a few opinions about Historical Romance. Fiction. A genre I like to read occasionally, but would never consider a favorite... Still, some of my frequently read authors have the best fiction out there. Mainstreamers like Nora Roberts, Heather Graham, Brenda Joyce, Elizabeth Lowell...

There are lots more, including many, many, many in the Christian Fiction line. Francine Rivers, Michael Phillips, Jeannette Oke, Brock and Bodie Thoene...

I read a book recently by a new author, Jeannie Ruesch. She's published with The Wild Rose Press. The book, Something About Her is another worthwhile read [and available in eFormat or print]. If you get a chance, I'm looking forward to sharing this book with someone. If you stop by The Girls on Books today, Friday, you can catch my review. I believe it's important to step outside of my groove, my rut, my regulars and favorites. Doing so opens my world and allows me pleasure in the unexpected.

If you like romance set in Regency England with a dash of mystery, Something About Her is the book for you.

I'd like to talk about historical fiction again....after the weekend, I think.
This is just the tip of the iceberg in a discussion that will be both stimulating and controversial. Come back! If you're a Christian, I'm interested in your opinion. Come and find out what makes me go Hmmm.

Take care.
Love,
Bethanne

  2. I like to read some fantasy set in a historical setting.

    But I'm not real big on hustoricals. But is good to try something new, you never know what you can do until you try it.
